Samsung shows off a new phablet

Samsung has pulled the wraps off a new smartphone in its Galaxy family called the Galaxy Grand. The smartphone runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and has a large five-inch display. This is another phone from Samsung that skirts the gap between the traditional smartphone and a tablet.

The Grand also has a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, integrated GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, integrated Wi-Fi, 8 GB of user accessible memory, and a microSD card slot supporting up to 64 GB cards for expansion. The phone has an integrated accelerometer, digital compass, proximity sensor, and Gyro. The phone operates on common HSPA+/EDGE/GPRS networks.

 

The phone is loaded with the latest version of Samsung Hubs, which delivers popular games movies and music on demand. The phone will be offered in two versions including a dual-SIM version that launches first, followed by a single-SIM version later. The dual-SIM version of the smartphone allows users to manage two phone numbers with a single phone.

Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

RE: Have you even tried using a 5" phone before?

Honestly, for a phone with a 5" screen it would make more sense for more on-board memory plus microSD. 8GB is pushing it, considering these large screens are asking for videos.

Precisely, and that's what this aforementioned phone gives us, expandable memory.

What's annoying is how more and more companies are forcing/luring users into using their "cloud" based storage services which draw extra revenue/invade our privacy. I know I know.. there are of course some conveniences, but what if you don't have good service while traveling? I still rather have MY data on MY phone, when I want it, and when I need it.
