Samsung is adding yet another member to its popular Galaxy Grand smartphone lineup, the Galaxy Grand Max, which has been officially launched through the company’s official blog. The device will be headed first to South Korean and you can expect it to reach other markets in the coming weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Max is essentially the final branding given to the Galaxy Grand 3 which was leaked extensively over the past couple of months. We already know a lot about the phone and most of the information provided has been spot on.
The handset follows the same design approach as all new releases from the company which is no surprise. The distinct feature here is that the rear panel has a new texture which hasn’t been used on any other device as far as we know. It’s also nice to see Samsung do something different from the overused dimpled design.
The Galaxy Grand Max is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core processor which we’re pretty sure is the 64-bit Snapdragon 410, but that hasn’t been confirmed as yet. Also, it offers a 5.25-inch 720p HD TFT LCD touchscreen and a 5MP selfie camera on the front, while the rear snapper is rated at 13MP. The handset is also 4G LTE enabled and packs 1.5GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage.
