After launching the Galaxy A8 earlier today, Samsung has launched another 4G smartphone known as Galaxy Grand Prime 4G in India. Though it was announced back in February, the smartphone is now available for Rs 11,100 in White, Grey and Gold colors.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime 4G has a 5 inch screen with qHD (540×960 pixels) TFT display. It is powered by 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM. The smartphone runs on company’s own TouchWiz UI based on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and has 8 GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64 GB with microSD card.
Galaxy Grand Prime 4G features an 8-megapxiel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera with an 85-degree wide-angle lens. The Galaxy Grand Prime packs 2,600mAh battery. The smartphone is equipped with LTE capability (LTE Cat 4), supporting both TDD and FDD bands in India. Other connectivity options includes Wi-Fi 2.4 802.11 b/g/n/ 2.4 GHz, Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and GLONASS.
“With the 4G variant of the Galaxy Grand Prime we continue to expand our product offerings in the mid-segment with the aim to provide uncompromised smartphone experience, at very competitive prices,” said Asim Warsi, vice president, Marketing, Mobile & IT at Samsung India.
The company has said that they have launched Galaxy Grand Prime 4G at a very affordable price, but citing the current market which is filled with phones like Lenovo K3 Note , Xiaomi Note 4G, and many others in the same price range, one must think twice before going for it.
