Samsung has today launched its Galaxy Grand Prime 4G in India with a price tag of Rs. 11,100, which equates to around $175. The Galaxy Grand Prime 4G is Samsung’s latest 4G smartphone in the rapidly growing market and brings the total number of LTE-enabled Galaxy devices in India to 14.
The handset was announced alongside the Galaxy Core Prime 4G and Galaxy J1 4G back in February this year but Samsung missed its expected release date; the handsets were meant to go on sale in March but the Core Prime 4G was only released in June and the J1 4G is yet to make its debut.
The Galaxy Grand Prime 4G is a dual-SIM smartphone with almost identical specs to the non-LTE variant aside from the addition of Band 3 and 20 LTE and Android 5.1 Lollipop. The specs also include a 5.0-inch qHD display with 540 x 960 pixels resolution (and a lowly density of 220 pixels per inch), a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a microSD slot.
On the back, the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G has an 8MP rear camera with single LED flash that is capable of Full HD video while the front facing 5MP snapper is also able to capture in 1080p. The handset has a comparatively large 2600 mAh battery which is removable, NFC, an FM Radio, the usual array of connectivity options and will be available in White, Grey and Gold.
