Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos gets official for India

The teams at Samsung have already announced their somewhat uninspiring mid-range Galaxy Grand smartphone, but today they detailed a few new markets. Today Samsung announced the Galaxy Grand Duos will be launching for those in India, complete with dual-SIM options and Jelly Bean. More info on this little handset can be had below.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand sure sounds amazing, but the Grand isn't quite as fancy as it sounds. For those that missed the original announcement this phone comes complete with a 5-inch display and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean -- so it sounds awesome right away. You'll quickly learn that the 5-inch screen isn't 1080p or even 720p, it's regular old school 480 x 800 and probably leaves much to be desired.

On the other hand you'll get a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 8 megapixel rear camera and 2MP on the front, as well as the usual bells and whistles. It runs the latest Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz, has Google Now, and is powered by a 2,100 mAh battery.

Being a dual-SIM option and in India you'll have multiple options with this smartphone, and it can be yours for around Rs 21,500. Or $420 off contract in US dollars. That might sound like a pretty high price when options like the Nexus 4 are $299, and you're right it is. For those looking for a large 5-inch device with dual-SIM options in India give the Galaxy Grand a look.

    Unfortunately .. Nexus 4 isn’t officially launched in India and even if it does many people are now saying that it won’t come in less than Rs 25k-28k which is around $ 450-$470 ..

    So as far as sales of this phone is concerned the Samsung branding will help it gain some popularity..

    I still hope that Nexus 4 comes at India with same price range of $ 299 … :)
