Samsung today has officially launched the Galaxy Grand Quattro, which seems like the Indian variant of the Galaxy Win Duos phone it launched internationally. In fact, the phone was first spotted selling online as the Galaxy Win for Rs 17,900 in India, and later was revealed as the Galaxy Grand Quattro on Samsung’s own eStore for Rs 18,260. Samsung, however, seems to have changed the name as well as the pricing strategy and has launched it at even a lower price tagged at Rs 17,290.
The Grand in the name suggests that this is Samsung’s another model of the recently announced Grand, which was launched mainly to beat the stiff competition the brand was facing from the likes of Micromax Canvas A116 HD. Micromax too has blanketed the sub-Rs 20,000 Android smartphones with a portfolio of Canvas branded devices that include the Canvas 2, Canvas HD, Canvas Doodle and Canvas 3D among others.
In terms of its specifications, the Quattro is a dual-SIM phone with a 4.7-inch WVGA display unlike the 5-inch seen in the Galaxy Grand, runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and houses a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 8GB of internal memory. The back features a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and the front facing VGA camera, and can record HD videos at 720p at 15fps along with offering HD video playback support at 30fps. This apart, it comes with a 2,000mAh battery, a microSD card slot and support up to 32GB of storage.
The phone is now available at an introductory price for Rs 17,290 with a Digital Wallet app of Rs 3,000 valid for 90 days applicable on downloading games.
