The freshly announced Galaxy Grand will ship with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean running atop Samsung's signature TouchWiz user interface. There you'll find various intuitive features from Samsung, including Direct Call, Smart Alert and S Voice, which lets you control the Galaxy Grand with just your voice.

The size of the display - 5 inches - puts the Grand firmly between Samsung’s wildly successful flagship, the Galaxy S III, and the largest member of the Galaxy range of devices, the mighty Galaxy Note II. With the screen pixel count of 800 x 480, however, Samsung Galaxy Grand comes closer to the Galaxy S III mini, which is the most compact offering in the Galaxy family.

Underneath the slim exterior, the Galaxy Grand packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, powerful enough to run two apps simultaneously on the same screen using Samsung's Multi Window feature. According to Samsung, the phone is also capable of shooting Full HD videos using the 8 Mpix rear camera that has a backside-illuminated sensor for better low-light performance.

The Galaxy Grand comes with an 8 GB of internal memory, and the user also has the option to gain additional storage space with MicroSD cards of up to 64 GB. Connectivity side is thoroughly covered on the Galaxy Grand with HSPA+, Bluetooth, A-GPS, DLNA and Wi-Fi.

Samsung also shared that it plans to release a dual-SIM version alongside a single-SIM Galaxy Grand, however, no word was given in regards to the availability or price at this stage.
