Posted by at 8:55 am on December 18, 2012

Samsung today announced the Galaxy Grand, a new Android smartphone that has a 5-inch display.

Unlike the Galaxy Note II or Galaxy S III, both of which have 720p HD displays, the Grand’s screen has a lower resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The Grand has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, 2-megapixel user-facing camera, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.

The Grand comes in several wireless variants, including one that supports HSPA+ at 21Mbps in the 850/1900/2100MHz bands, which makes it compatible with AT&T’s 3G network. One version has two SIM card slots and supports two numbers. The Grand includes 8GB of onboard storage and supports microSD cards.

Samsung did not say when or where the Galaxy Grand would go on sale, nor how much it will cost. No U.S. carriers have announced plans to carry it.
