The Galaxy Grand sports a WVGA 480×800 pixels display compared to 800 x 1280 pixels on the bigger handset in a bid to keep the costs down.The Galaxy Note II has more than 3 times the pixel count of the Grand, so the Note II’s display is significantly sharper.

Galaxy Grand runs on Android 4.1.2 and includes various software features that have made an appearance on earlier Samsung devices including Direct Call (automatically dial a call by raising the device up to the ear), Popup Video (lets users watch video in a pop-up window anywhere on the screen while running other tasks) and the virtual assistant S Voice.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand is an HSPA+ capable device with maximum download speeds of up to 21Mbps. It supports WiFi, USB and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and it comes with GPS and GLONASS positioning systems. Inside, the Galaxy Grand packs an accelerometer, digital compass, proximity sensor, gyroscope and a light sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand is quite a big device at 144 x 77 x 9.6mm and 162 grams, and inside is a fairly large 2100 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand will be available in both single-SIM (GT-I9080) and dual-SIM (GT-I9082) variants. The dual-SIM variant is dual-active, which means it is possible to receive calls on one SIM number while talking on the other.
