Samsung’s next budget phone is yet another selfie machine

Phone manufacturers are really trying to jump onto the selfie bandwagon, first Microsoft and Sony and now Samsung is apparently releasing its own selfie machine in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime.

It’s popped up on retail listings, on government documents, and now Thegioididong has reportedly got its hands on the unannounced phone and spilled the beans on what the phone will have to offer.

The phone will apparently have a 5-inch screen with a disappointing 960 x 540 resolution, a 5MP front-facing camera, a 1.2GHZ quad-core processor, 4G, 8GB of expandable storage, and an 8MP rear camera.

The phone is reportedly set for release in China and Vietnam some time in October. Sadly, due to older Samsung Grand phones not making it to the US and Europe it’s unlikely that we’ll see it. Guess all the selfie fanatics will have to do with the Lumia 730.
