Samsung will cover any niche market it can find, and the recent onslaught of selfie-focused smartphones is definitely a party they were to join. Recent leaks show what could be the latest iteration of their Samsung Galaxy Grand series, which could very well be one of their main selfie phones.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has shown up in a Vietnamese website. We have pictures, specs and even an estimated release window.


As you can see, the Galaxy Grand Prime looks much like its predecessors. It’s large and follows that traditional Samsung design we can all recognize from a mile away. Its 5-inch screen sports a qHD (960x540p) resolution, which happens to be a substantial downgrade over the Galaxy Grand 2’s 5.25-inch 720p display. A bit of an odd situation, since all other specs are near identical and this should be meant to be a better phone.


The Galaxy Grand Prime does get that 5 MP front-facing camera, though, making it a great device for those selfie shots. Other specs include an 8 MP rear camera, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Rumors also say the device will be launching in Vietnam this coming October, so it shouldn’t be long before it reaches other markets.
