The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has been unveiled for customers who want to lay their hands on a relatively affordable big screen device, however, nothing has been revealed about the phone’s price or availability details as yet. Its white-colored variant will be up for sale in most areas, while the models drenched in pink and black will be hitting store shelves in select regions.

The first thing that you will notice in the device is its 5.25-inch TFT touchscreen that has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is said to be apt for gaming, watching movies and even reading eBooks. The Samsung smartphone acquires multitasking properties from a quad core processor ticking at 1.2GHz as well as 1.5GB of RAM.
