Samsung Galaxy Grand 2: another phablet on the horizon

Yet another mid-range model arrives in the Galaxy range – and leaves us scratching our heads

Samsung is showing no signs of slowing down in its hectic phone release schedule. The company today unveiled the Galaxy Grand 2, a 5.25in model that looks a lot like a Galaxy Note 3 but offers very little of that phone’s appeal.

Phabulous? Or phlat?

The Grand 2 is relentlessly mid-range (720p screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, Android 4.3, 8MP camera) where the Note is powerful, and lacks the S-Pen stylus. So basically it’s just a really big, really averagely specced phone, with only its dual-SIM capabilities likely to raise a bit of interest. There’s no support for 4G LTE.

Samsung clearly believes there’s a market for it, but unless it’s incredibly cheap we can’t see it proving tempting to, well, anybody. The price and release date are both yet to be confirmed.
