Samsung has just announced a mid-range Galaxy Grand Neo for €260 with a similar design and larger screen that of the Galaxy Grand 2.
The upcoming flagship phone the Galaxy S5 has been getting much of attention now-a-days, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has stopped working on the low-cost lineup as well. In fact, the South Korean manufacturer has unveiled the Galaxy Grand Neo, retailed at €260 (about $355 at the current exchange rate).
The Galaxy Grand Neo resembles the Galaxy Grand 2 in both size and style. With a 5-inch display, it has a resolution of 800 x 480 at a bit low pixel density of 186ppi. It equips a quad-core Cortex A7 processor clocked at 1.2GHz along with 1GB of RAM that ensures the phone work quite well.
It comes with 16GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded up to 64GB via micro SD card. In camera section, a 5-megapixel sensor with LED flash is fitted on the back, accompanied by a front-facing VGA camera. Surprisingly, it runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the box and has a 2100 mAh battery. In addition to standard connectivity options, the phone supports HSPA+ and Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
The Galaxy Grand Neo is available for €260 in the Netherlands, followed by worldwide availability in the coming days. While it’s a tempting price for such nice looking handset, it doesn’t quite stand out above other recent options such as Moto G and LG G Pro Lite, even though, the Nexus 4 has superior features from all points of view.
