The selfie is easily the most popular genre of taking snaps these days and Samsung is making an attempt to capitalize on that market with the Galaxy Grand Prime. Recent leaked images of the smartphone reveal its front-facing camera boasting 5MP resolution, a sizeable improvement over the 2MP shooters of previous Grand series.
The unofficial information about the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime also reveals an 8MP main camera with 1080p video capturing ability. The smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with 1GB RAM, running Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
The new smartphone features 5″ big display with qHD resolution. That’s a bit of downgrade compared to the 5.25″ 720p display of the Galaxy Grand 2.Like other Grand series smartphones, the Galaxy Grand Prime will be a dual-SIM handset with 3G connectivity (HSPA going up to 5.76Mbps up ,42Mbps down). Other connectivity includes Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.. There is also 8GB built-in storage expandable via microSD card slots.
This information is coming from Vietnam where the Galaxy Grand Prime is scheduled to arrive in October. This will be Samsung’s first phone with a high-resolution front-facing camera though the competition will be waiting for it – the bigger Sony Xperia C3 Dual is already available and the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM might arrive during that duration too.
