Earlier this month Samsung announced the Galaxy Grand 2, a mashup of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3‘s style and looks, but with a set of mid-range specs to keep the price down. A rumour is now being spread that we should look out for another in the Galaxy Grand range next year. The phone being hinted at is the Galaxy Grand Lite, and it may be a simple re-working of the original Galaxy Grand.
According to a report by fan site SamMobile, the Grand Lite could have a 5-inch touchscreen with a 480×800 pixel resolution, and be powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, along with 1GB of RAM. This is an improvement in the chip department over the Galaxy Grand, but with slightly less RAM than the Grand 2.
We’re expecting the Grand Lite to come with Android 4.3 installed as standard, but SamMobile‘s sources say the phone currently runs Android 4.2, which would be disappointing should it make it to the final production model. Samsung’s TouchWiz is inevitably to be installed over the top.
Other features listed include 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot, a 2100mAh battery, and the chance of a dual-SIM option in some markets. As for the camera, a 5-megapixel camera could be fitted, making it lower than the one found on the back of both the Grand and the Grand 2. Samsung could also continue its interest in bright colour schemes, and both orange and lime green could line up next to a standard white and black phones.
We still have some time to wait before the phone makes an official appearance, provided the rumours are true, as it’s supposedly scheduled for announcement close to Mobile World Congress in February next year.
