Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung has officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Android smartphone. This new smartphone has a premium finish, decent hardware configuration and is expected to be priced in the same price range as the original Galaxy Grand.

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is here! Samsung has finally rolled out a new Android smartphone for mid-segment consumers. And the best part is that the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has the exact same faux leather back that is present on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. So if you are fond of the faux leather back cover and the wonderful stitching pattern that gives it the premium look, you can have it on your smartphone even if you can’t afford to shell out hundreds of dollars for the Galaxy Note 3.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has a 5.25-inch LCD touchscreen display with an improved HD screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, dedicated GPU and has 1.5GB of RAM. So there’s an improvement in the processor as well as RAM. But as far as storage is concerned, you still get 8GB by default and can always expand storage as and when you wish with the help of the microSD support available on the Galaxy Grand 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 also comes with an improved 2600mAh battery compared to the 2100mAh battery present on the original Galaxy Grand. So not only is the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 better, clearer and faster than the original Galaxy Grand, but at the same time will give you a better battery backup.

Of course, since the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has a 5.25-inch display, the smartphone is a little bigger than the original model. You will still get the 8MP primary camera and dual-SIM support, features that have proved to be great and useful on the Samsung Galaxy Grand. One of the best updates to the new model is that the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box. So unlike Samsung Galaxy Grand consumers that have been waiting for the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean since a lifetime, Galaxy Grand 2 will be able to get all the goodness of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right away.

As of now we do not have the price and availability details of the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, but we do know that the smartphone will be offered in three color options namely white, black and pink. But the black and pink color options will be available in select regions only.
