You’d think that the next tier above mid tier, is a high-end smartphone, but that’s really only the case if you’re not talking about Samsung. We’ve seen the company launch watered down variants of certain smartphones, or new variants of the same phone with higher specs. If the amount of Galaxy phones in the market confuses you, we’ll admit it confuses us too, but that won’t stop Sammy from bringing on more.
We have some leaked specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, which is definitely not a high-end phone, but will be a tad more powerful than the basic Samsung Galaxy Grand that we already know. We see a 5-inch display with undisclosed resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage according to the specs leaked. Perhaps the only interesting aspect of this phone when compared to its predecessor is that this one sports a 5-megapixel front facing camera, something that could land it into “selfie phone” territory.
Most smartphone makers are launching “selfie phones” with mid range specifications in order to cater to the teenage market. It seems Samsung’s plan is to join the crowd with this device as well.
