Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G back in February this year, but it only now that the smartphone has gone on sale in India. The Galaxy Grand Prime 4G is on sale via Samsung’s Indian eStore, priced at Rs 11,100. This was first spotted by FoneArena.
The Galaxy Grand Prime 4G sports a 5-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) TFT display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Also on offer is 8GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 64GB using a microSD card.
The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel camera at the back with LED flash, 5-megapixel selfie camera, and a 2,600mAh battery. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS/GLONASS and Bluetooth 4.0. On the software front, it runs on 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
The Galaxy Grand Prime 4G is the latest in the line of Samsung’s affordable smartphones with LTE capabilities. The company recently launched Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7, which are two mid-range smartphones with decent specifications and an aggressive price tag. Recently, we have also seen the price of the Galaxy S5 drop to an all-time low, and can be picked up for as low as Rs 14,999.
At this price, the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G will face some tough competition from the likes of the Motorola Moto G (third-generation) and the Xiaomi Mi 4i, which offer a much better set of specifications.
