As we’re waiting for the company to unveil their newest flagship in Barcelona next month, Samsung is announcing their devices all over the place, and it seems like they’re focusing on India a whole lot recently. The newest addition to Samsung’s India lineup is the Galaxy Grand Max which has been officially announced by the company. The device will be exclusively available via Snapdeal.com in the country, more on that later though, let’s check out what this handset has to offer.
The Galaxy Grand Max was originally announced in South Korea in January, and a month later it arrives in India. This handset features a 5.2-inch 720p (1280 x 720) IPS display along with 1.5GB of RAM for your multitasking needs and 16GB of in-built storage (expandable via microSD card). Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC, a 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz is powering on this device along with an Adreno 306 GPU which is in charge of graphics. 13-megapixel snapper is located on the back of this handset and flanked by an LED flash, while there’s a 5-megapixel camera available up front. 2,500mAh battery ships with the device, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed here with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of Google’s operating system. This device offers dual-SIM support / connectivity, which I’m sure many people in India are taking advantage of. As far as connectivity goes, this device offers 3G support (no 4G LTE here) along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Galaxy Grand Max measures 146 x 74.8 x 7.9mm and weighs 161 grams.
As I already mentioned, the Galaxy Grand Max will be available exclusively via Snapdeal.com in Black and White color option, and will cost you 15,990 ($257) should you choose to get one. This handset will most likely compete with the Redmi Note 4G, Yu Yureka and Moto G (2014) for customers in the country, at least price-wise. This is, of course, not one of Samsung’s high-end devices, but a solid mid-range phone. It remains to be seen how many consumers will be interested in purchasing one though. Speaking of which, is anyone interested in this device, do you intend to purchase it?
