Samsung gives the Galaxy Grand 2 a golden paint job


Last updated: August 12th, 2014 at 07:50 UTC+02:00

Samsung has been pretty consistent with releasing gold colored versions of its flagships phones in recent months, and now the Korean manufacturer looks to be turning its attention towards its mid-range devices. A gold variant of the Galaxy Grand 2 has been spotted on Samsung India’s website, giving future buyers of one of the company’s best-selling phones another color to choose from. Unfortunately, if you’re looking to this one up, you might have to wait a little as the phone is listed as out of stock for now, though that will likely change in the near future.

As expected, the change in color hasn’t resulted in a change of specs. You still get a 5.25-inch 720p display, 1.2 GHz dua-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 8 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, a 2,100 mAh battery, dual SIM slots, and Android 4.3, with an update to Android 4.4 KitKat already out. Sadly, the meager specs are still carrying a high price tag of around $340 (Rs. 20,900), at least in India, so the new color hasn’t changed the fact that the Galaxy Grand 2 remains a poor choice among a sea of newer budget handsets from other manufacturers, like the Moto G.
