In South Korea, Samsung launched an addition to its Galaxy Grand series with the new Galaxy Grand Max and is now listed on the Samsung’s Korea store. The news follows after its launch of 4 new smartphones under the Galaxy A & E series in India. The all new Galaxy Grand Max is said to hit the Korean markets today (9th January) at KWR 319K (approximately for $290). Its availability in other markets isn’t quite sure as no such announcements were made during the launch event.
The Galaxy Grand Max sports a 13MP autofocus enabled rear camera with LED flash. One more prominent feature of the device is the 5MP front camera with 120 degree viewing angle for capturing better selfies than before. It can also be operated by voice commands which lets you focus on putting up those funny faces rather than worrying about the shutter release.
The Galaxy Grand Max is a 5.25-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen device. It houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset, a Quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, Adreno 306 for GPU and 1.5GB of RAM, which is quite good when it comes to other devices in the same price range.
Running on Android Kitkat (v4.4.4), the device supports single SIM (micro-SIM). Provided with an internal storage capacity of 16GB, users can expand it up to 64GB using the conventional micro-SD cards. For connectivity features, the list goes as 4G LTE support, micro USB, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GPS, GLONASS and FM radio. The phone is powered by a 2500mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery.
Looking at the design, the front of the Galaxy Grand Max looks as the conventional Samsung devices without any noticeable changes. Whereas the back has a new quilt-pattern design which definitely makes the Galaxy Grand Max stand apart from the rest of the Galaxy family. It weighs around 161g and is sufficiently thin at 7.9mm. Currently there aren’t any colour variants available for the device other than White.
