When one thinks of the name Samsung, he or she would probably think of cutting-edge devices like the Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2, or even the Google-branded Nexus 10 tablet and its ultra-high definition display. At the end of the day, Samsung is still a company that offers something for everybody, including consumers who don’t have a large enough budget for higher-end phones and those located in the company’s home continent of Asia.
That brings us to the rumored Galaxy Grand Duos, or the GT-I9082 LCD. For some time, it was believed that benchmark sightings of this phone pertained to a Galaxy S4 prototype, but as it turns out, it was an entirely different phone altogether.
SamMobile has fresh scoop on this mystery device, and it looks like the Galaxy Grand Duos will be a larger version of the midrange Galaxy S Duos. According to the Samsung-centric site, the Galaxy Grand Duos will probably be launched next month as a phone offering the benefit of a jumbo-sized screen, albeit without the bloated price tag. In other words, it will also be a midrange device.
Rumored specs include an 800 x 480 display resolution, but the phone may also have some high-end specs in it too, such as an unspecified quad-core processor, a 2,100 mAh battery and NFC. It will, as the name implies, also offer dual-SIM functionality, a very popular feature with Southeast Asian consumers for the most part.
The presence of a quad-core processor seems like a bit of a surprise, but at any rate, the Galaxy Grand Duos sounds like something Samsung’s Southeast Asian fans will appreciate. It will also make a nice addition to the growing Samsung dual-SIM family, which also includes dual-SIM versions of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.
