A new 5.5-inch smartphone from Samsung, bearing model number SM-G7200 has recently been spotted in the GFXBench database. Rumors say that this could be the Galaxy Grand 3. After the success of Galaxy Grand 2 which was launched last year, it looks like Samsung is getting ready to launch its successor now. Samsung has recently unveiled its Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 smartphones.
The GFXBench listing revealing most of the specifications of SM-G7200 or the Galaxy Grand 3 was first spotted by Gizmobic. The handset is a clear upgrade in all areas over the Galaxy Grand 2. The device has already gone through Bluetooth certification a couple of months back.
Let’s come to the specs. According to the listing, the Galaxy Grand 3 sports a 5.5-inch HD screen (Grand 2 had 5.25”display), with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (ARMv7) processor and Adreno 306 GPU. The handset has 1.5GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage with usable memory of 12 GB, and it will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box.
Biggest improvement is the camera department. Primary rear camera of the Grand 3 is 13MP against 8MP of Grand 2. The front-facing camera has also been upgraded from a mere 1.9MP to a respectable 5MP making it a good handset for taking selfies. The recently unveiled Galaxy Grand Prime has a 5MP front-facing camera. Both the cameras of the Galaxy Grand 3 are capable of recording 1080p video.
There is no information about battery capacity, pricing or when the new Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 will be launched by the company. Since Samsung had launched the Galaxy Grand in India first, it may also launch the Grand 3 first in India. Samsung has just recently launched its 6” Galaxy Mega 2 in the country. The company is yet to launch its much rumored metal-bodied Galaxy A7 smartphone.
