Powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, the phone includes a 2,600mAh battery that promises 17 hours of calls and 10 hours of playback on a single charge. Internal storage is a mere 8GB, but you can bump that up to 64GB with a microSD card.
Dual-SIM capability lets you switch between different carriers. However, the device isnt 4G LTE-compatible and supports HSPA+ instead.
Samsung has enhanced the Grand 2s 8-megapixel rear camera with such features as Best Face, Best Photo, and Continuous Shot. The Grand 2 will also include an array of Samsung apps, including Story Album, S Translator, S Travel, Samsung Hub, and Samsung Link.
Equipped with Android 4.3, the phone will come in white, black, and pink. Samsung also said it will be available in "selective regions" but didnt reveal any specific markets, launch date, or pricing. A Samsung spokesperson told CNET that no US plans have been announced for the Grand 2.
