SamMobile confirms Galaxy Grand Lite (GT-I9060), to be announced at MWC

Yes, folks, you read that right. There’s the original Galaxy Grand, the just announced Galaxy Grand 2, and in a couple of months, there will be another Galaxy Grand sandwiched in between, dubbed the Galaxy Grand Lite (GT-I9060), according to one of our insiders. The device will be showcased at the MWC in late February, and is something of a cross Grand and Grand 2 – it will have a 5-inch WVGA screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage with microSD slot, and a 2,100mAh battery.

Where it differs is the camera and Android version. The camera is expected to be a 5-megapixel unit on the rear and a very standard VGA camera on the front; our insider says the phone will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean – that’s probably just temporary, and the final product should have at least Android 4.3 out of the box. Dual SIM support is pretty much a given as well, as the Galaxy Grand has been a success in markets where phones with two SIM slots are quite popular (such as India and China), though that’s something we can’t confirm at this point.


The Galaxy Grand Lite will be available in white, “Midnight Black”, “Lime Green”, and orange, from somewhere around the fifth week of 2014 (a couple of weeks before the MWC showcase). Why is Samsung making a Galaxy Grand Lite? Well, that’s a tough question to answer – it looks like the Korean company is taking things a step further when it comes to having multiple variants of their devices, this time extending the tradition to a device that comes somewhere in the lower mid-range spectrum of the market. It’s not a move that makes any sense to us, but hey, we aren’t making the decisions over at Samsung HQ.

There simply isn’t any sense in having a Grand Lite while we already are having Grand Duos, Grand Quattro & the new Grand 2 which isn’t yet available although announced. I really think Samsung must revise their product portfolio now. There are simply too much devices to count. The joke perhaps says rightly, that Samsung is having more Galaxies than the ones that are actually present in universe! Ha!

…having some variations makes sense…to cover the entire income spectrum…but having a billion different models, each with its own software and specifications is just absurd…can Samsung for once stop creating more and more devices and start maintaining those that they have (esp. regarding software)…I’ve been waiting months for an update to a flagship Samsung device…don’t even want to know what it feels like getting an old/cheap model…

dont worry… on the next week there will be another galaxy, screen size 5.125″ and a wekk after that another galaxy 5.325″ and so on… finaly every inches are covered.

this is already ridiculous and looks like they have lost totally. when do they have time to update even their flagships? been waiting months for a update – a year old device, note 10.1, having still android 4.1.2 which came on january almost year ago…a flagship without updates? maybe it should be called as a flagshit…

what to say that part of the market is already flooded by Samsung any way.. So a slightly better phone for that part of the market its aimed at..
