Galaxy Grand Launch IndiaThe beauty of the Internet, an event just started and I am following it. I have indicated launches because once they do the launch the post will be as good as in the past. That in mind, be aware that it just started and is ongoing, so if you have some time and want to know what the Galaxy Grand has on offer, tune in to the live webcast on facebook. This smartphone is coming to a region close to you soon.

Let’s quickly go through the specs of the phone;

  • Runs on mini-SIM card, Dual SIM
  • 3G HSDPA Dual band (this matters only to your ISP) but can do 21Mbps down
  • Runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
  • CPU: 1.2GHZ DUal-Core
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB ROM with microSD support of upto 64GB
  • Screen is 5 inch LCD TFT WVGA
