Samsung has recently launched a new phone- Galaxy Grand Max in Korea. It has almost same specs as the Galaxy Grand 2, but the processor is renovated. It will also have LTE support as added feature, and come with KitKat out-of-box as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Max does not stand so high in case of the other specs though, like the devices coming under the Grand lineup. It features a 5.25-inches HD (1280 X 720 pixels) IPS LCD capacitive display, which has a pixel density of 282 ppi. The handset is sleek, having dimensions of 146 x 74.8 x 7.9 mm and it weighs just 161 grams. The phone will have 16 GB of internal memory with 1.5 GB of RAM and with an option of expandable storage option via microSD card upto 64 GB. For the processing power, there will be Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset, compiled with Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53, and Adreno 306 GPU for gaming and graphics. For the photography and videography options, this smartphone will have a 13 MP primary camera with autofocus and LED Flash which can capture videos upto 1080p @ 30 fps, and a 5 MP secondary camera for video calls and selfies. The juice will be provided by a user removable Li-ion 2500 mAh battery. For the connectivity options, there will be LTE support, microUSB v2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi. The phone will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system out of box with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI over it, and we can’t say anything about the future updates. The phone will be available in only two color options- Black and White.
The 5 MP front snapper of this device is 120 degree wide angle lens, which makes it a selfie-centered device. The back panel of this device is made up of faux leather, similar to that of Galaxy S5 or Note 4.
The Galaxy Grand Max is already on sale in Korea, starting today, for the price of 319,000 won ($290). Nothing is said yet about its international availability, but it is expected to launch on other markets soon, following the trend of previous Grand devices.
