Samsung announces Affordable Galaxy Grand 2 Phablet

Numero Uno mobile phone manufacturer, Samsung is continuing with its strategy of launching a successful product and then its successors. Latest to follow this trend is company’s Galaxy Grand device. It was unveiled in December last year to bring its popular Galaxy Note’s display size to a much affordable device. In that way, ‘phablets’ would be a right name for the Galaxy Grand series.

The successor is aptly called as Galaxy Grand 2 and offers similar features with slightly better specifications.
