Samsung Announces New Galaxy Grand with Quad-Core CPU

Samsung has announced a new version of Galaxy Grand smartphone that will boast a quad-core processor. The two previous models unveiled were based off dual-core processors, with one accepting dual SIM cards and the other not supporting said functionality. Meanwhile, the new model will offer an improved processor and faster connectivity.

The device will sport a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, as well as LTE support, which isn't present on other variants of the phone. It'll include the same 5-inch (800 x 480) display found on previous models, in addition to 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), a 2100mAh battery, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, joined by a front-facing 2-megapixel snapper.

As well as housing NFC with S Beam support (which was also lacking in previous models), the phone will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the TouchWiz user interface, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and T-DMB, a mobile television service for South Korean consumers.

As suggested by the inclusion of T-DMB, South Korea will be first to receive the device. Pricing and other details on availability have yet to be unveiled but expect a global launch confirmation at MWC in February.

    Another day...another new Sammy phone. They just need to focus on the Note 3 and S4. .. .and maybe one or two more economical models for those that want that but it seems like there's maybe just too many different models.

    I don't mind many phones, but I want to understand what's the difference between them.
    Faster CPU (moar coars, yeah) is for "faster connectivity", are you kidding me?
