Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Grand Max

Clearly not content with just announcing the new Galaxy E-Series, or waiting until the Galaxy S6 is ready to be unveiled, Samsung has just announced another new smartphone to add to its line-up: The Galaxy Grand Max.

It’ll come with a 5.25-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, 4G, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD expansion, a 2,500 mAh battery, and all runs on Android KitKat. Don’t be surprised if it gets an update to Lollipop not long after launch, though.

That puts it firmly in the category of mid-range, which Samsung has been lacking in recent times. That means it’s announcement can only be a good thing.

The Grand Max will initially be exclusive to South Korea, but like the Galaxy Note Edge it wouldn’t be surprising if it ended up getting an international release if it sells well. It’ll cost 319,000 South Korean Won, which is roughly £193.

We’ll update you all if anymore information comes to light.
