Samsung's Galaxy Grand 2 was launched late last year and through the first half of 2014 it has been one of the company's better selling devices. In a year of falling sales and profits, a success is good news for Samsung and the Korean giant is going to capitalize on it with a new sequel which we think is aptly named the Galaxy Grand 3.It's carrying the model number SM-G7200, but has not been announced yet, but it has passed through China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center so it is certainly imminent. As you would expect, Samsung is updating the Grand 2 in almost every way; you may remember the original carried a 5.25-inch 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 8MP rear camera, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage. The new Galaxy Grand 3 will receive the same 5.25-inch screen with 720p resolution, while it will get a processor bump to a 64-bit 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 paired with 1.5GB of RAM. There will also be 16GB of storage, a micro SD card slot for up to 128GB, and Android 4.4.4 running the show, with an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop likely. The Grand 2 was a solid enough device for a mid-range effort, so we will be happy to see what the new Galaxy Grand 3 can do. The handset will be available in black, white, and probably more colors and we will be delighted to see how much its costs... fingers crossed Samsung keeps the price respectable. source: TENAA
