The company on Thursday took the wraps off the new Galaxy Grand Max smartphone in its South Korea. The phone will go on sale beginning January 9 in the country for 319,000 won ($290).
Featuring a 7.9mm thick chassis and new quilted pattern on the back, the new Grand Max comes with 5.25-inch HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM and 2500 mAh battery. The phone also packs 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, 4G LTE support, 16GB of internal storage and microSD card slot.
According to Samsung, the phone will be initially available at the company’s online store, however it will also be released via an MVNO on a later date. (source)
