Unlike US smartphone users, who seem to be more swept away with high-end hardware than anything else, Europeans are generally less pretentious, mostly preferring entry-level or mid-range devices with sensible prices.
And if you throw into the mix dual-SIM capabilities and Samsung’s prestige, you simply know that you’ll have a hit product. The Galaxy Grand Duos is the latest such phone, unveiled back in December 2012.
However, it’s today that we’re hearing for the first time about an official ETA, set for next month. Like most other Samsung devices, this will be also seeing daylight first in Europe and then in the rest of the world.
Ukraine is actually going to be the first to get the 5-incher, but unfortunately the pricing doesn’t sound too sensible – 4,444 UAH, or $547. That’s very close to what Samsung is charging for its spearheads in the States, and while the Galaxy Grand Duos is no slouch, it isn’t a top-tier device either.
As a quick reminder, the phone comes with a 480 x 800 pix res display, a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of on-board memory, microSD support, dual 8 MP/2 MP cameras and a 2,100 mAh battery.
