Get ready for the Samsung Galaxy Grand, 5-inch dual-SIM Android for Php16,990

Samsung is set to unveil a 5-inch Android this month for those looking for a dual-SIM phone on a large body from a reputable brand.

Samsung Galaxy Grand

The Samsung Galaxy Grand looks like a smaller Galaxy Note without the stylus and a less-than-stellar WVGA resolution. That’s an 800 x 480 resolution on a 5-inch TFT LCD screen for a below average 187 ppi pixel density. Not the same as the usual vibrant and sharp AMOLED screens we’re used to from Samsung.

Anyway, if screen resolution is not that big a deal for you, the Galaxy Grand sports a modest 1.2 GHz dual-core processor (exact chip still unknown) with 1GB RAM. Internal storage is limited at 8GB but you’ll have the option for microSD. It also comes equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of Full HD video recording and a nice 2-megapixel camera up front.

Battery is rated at 2100 mAh and the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS makes sure that your resources are more optimized than ICS. Despite the screen resolution, you’ll get a nice-looking 5-inch phone from Samsung that has the latest OS and has dual-SIM support for Php16,990. Expect this phone to be available this month in Elegant White and Metallic Blue colors.

    parang Titan with slightly beefier specs and that brand name. dapat ganyan na yung mga bagong Titan, 1GB RAM.

  • Nhel

    233ppi? akala ko 187ppi lang siya.

    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      whoops thanks for the catch!

      • mj

        bat nakalagay dun 187 ppi? san mu nkuha ung 233 ppi nhel? anu ba tlga xa 187ppi o 233ppi?

  • allanco

    Dualsim dual standby dn po b ito?

    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      havent tested yet but i would assume it is. most, if not all, dual sim androids are dual-standby.

  • JB

    ehehe ang mahal ng brand..

  • sinneD

    parehas lang ng resolution ng Galaxy S Duos, dual core at 8MP nga lng… mas ok na GS Duos

    • DecodeD

      afaik single core lang yung galaxy s duos.

      • renz

        Meh, Galaxy S duos nga eh, magbasa ka nga.

  • janica

    Kaya ang bilis mag-depreciate ng older models eh. kakalabas lang ng S3 mini may bago nanaman. tsk tsk.

  • king

    masyado yata malapad s 5inch. dpat 4.5 lang

    • Dess

      Nagmagaling

  • asyong

    myhone a919 has better ppi than that “grand” i would love to pit it against each other. almost same specs. price of a919 was way below though. :)

    • hopia

      I still choose this. Mas sure ka kasi na hindi siya papalya. tapos marami pang service centers. Accesories, nakikilala siya ng google play at syempre, mas sosyal pa rin to.

      • kyle

        you just bought the brand. a919 is being practical, if you just really know how to read these specs.

  • DecodeD

    sa tingin ko po mas maganda ang Galaxy Grand sir

    specs vs specs comparison mas maganda po galaxy grand.

    screen size: 5 inch both
    screen res: 480×854 for a919 vs 480×800 for grand. note: 54 pixel is neglible for a normal user, kahit po pagtabihin niyo wala po kayong makikitang difference.
    os: ics for a919 vs jb for grand
    ui: touchwich ui with nature ux is years ahead of custom aosp ui of a919
    price: jan lang po dehado ang grand.

    samsung is much better than myphone

    peace

  • DecodeD

    sir calvin sa tingin ko po eh broadcom cpu with videocore iv gpu same as galaxy s ii plus

  • Christoper Aquino

    will this SG grand ovhaherlap SG SIII? I think samsung has been loosing ideas of models, its always the same look, same hardware,I mean what’s really new?

    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      no it wont. this is for those who need dual-sim. s3 is for those looking for high-end specs.

  • Psanchez

    I have to agree with Calvin on this, para talaga to sa mga taong who want to only carry one phablet. Ako din kasi ganyan hanap ko before, I was actually waiting for Note 2 to be re-released with dual sim.

  • cefee

    Posted on my sg grand dous. Have already tab 2 7.0 tab2 10.1 and tried out the s3 mini…bought this instead because of the 5 inch screen..all the features of s3..not the mini only on a 2 core chip…so far im satisfied …sa my fone at other local brands ba yun correct me if wrong…what matters most is the software support…firmware upgrades etc…wala kasi yan sa my phone or the likes…pwede pero i root mo pa…unlike samsung na update mo lang …ok na…at ang my phone hindi ka basta maka install thru playstore…so thats y i chose sg grand…hassle free…

  • anOnymous

    why is my friends unit is 4GB internal memory?

    • barrio morning glory

      4gb para sa mga internal apps mga widget etc etc included so.. 4gb lang ang natitira para sa apps na mai DL mo… root na yan para ilagay ang mga apps sa sd card.

      • Steven

        Hindi kaya maeron talagang sadyang 4Gb internal memory for other users try mo kayang mag apply sa SUn plan 999 ibibigay sayo 4gb lang

  • lesterdgr8

    I like the feature of sg grand, like cm titan, I have already budget for this unit. I will buy .

  • http://NA Homer

    That price for the GRAND seems too high for a phone with a less than stellar screen.

    The big weakness is obviously the SCREEn 187 PIXELS STRETCHED over 5 inches. WOW big ask !!!

    You would be smarter to add a bit more money and buy the GALAXY S3.

  • ella

    Tamang tama lang ang phone na to for those people like me who wants dual sim with good specs. Depende naman sa taong gagamit if they want a high end unit, this is not for them.

  • Jeboi

    I will buy this phone.

  • ANNE

    Ive been using sg grand so far in so satisfied and as for me i want bigger screen i cant afford note 2 so i settled with this and im good with it,,its more cheaper in dubai it only cost around 12k

    • ella

      May I ask if valid dito sa Pinas yung warranty if yung grand bought from Dubai? TIA

      • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

        better ask the shop in dubai kung may international warranty na kasama

  • J

    it’s dual sim standby yet they only made the battery for only 2100mah………… sana man lang 3000…… hayz!

  • vino

    Ask ko lng bkit 4gb lang nka reflect sa unit ko instead of 8gb? And pwede ko po ba lagyan ng sim broadband ung isang slot so that it will work sa internet? Ty

    • mei

      yes…tried it with smart bro. :)

    • Steven

      Yes, pero kailangan hindi siya micro sim ng carier. dapat sa sim slot 1 mo ilagay

  • http://[email protected] yezz

    if i were to choose, i would still prefer galaxy win over this. and if you were for a budget, look for alcatel sapphire 2/x’pop over cm, my phone, o+ etc.. alcatel is long standing phone manufacturer, no doubt sa build and quality. sa samsung kasi, pangalan nalang yung binibili mo. why not settle for other international brands if the specs are almost the same?

    • kyle

      right ! and Samsung releases so many models within a year, even for a month, so it depreciates so fast. my friend bought his S4 weeks ago, and now an s4 active (dust and water resistant) and zoom (for cam fans). it also irritates me (haha) when i bought my galaxy Y duos, newly released, at 8990 and checked it after maybe 6 mos. at 5990. it kills me!

  • romy

    Mas maganda po ang galaxy grand ikompara sa galaxy note. Subok kuna kasi ito gamiy ko.

  • jhem

    kamukha ng galaxy s3 magkaiba nga lng ng specs.. per0 oks ndn!!

  • rayukem

    Itong primary phone ko and it’s soo nice! And I love it ‘coz it’s so huuge! Mas gusto ko siya kaso nung bagong bili pa lang at naooverwhelm ako sa size niya, ngayon normal na lang siya tingnan. May naeexperience lang akong occasional hiccups, sa battery saving app siguro na dinownload ko.

  • https://twiter.com/iammharwin_17 mharz
