Not content with its wide catalog of varied proposals, the Korean company Samsung has just presented a new proposal that will especially appeal to the younger audience. This is the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime a smartphone of mid-range high that has been designed for those who usually practice the new sport fashion: capture selfies . Not surprisingly, the new Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has a second camera located on the front with a five-megapixel sensor, ready to obtain very good quality snapshots. But this is not the only thing we would highlight from this team.
And the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is a smartphone equipped with a large 5-inch screen and a 1.2 GHz quad-core architecture processor that gives it all the power that an ordinary user needs. Would emphasize, on the other hand, its camera of 8 megapixels and the fact that incorporates one of the latest versions of the operating system Google: Android 4.4 KitKat . Next, we thoroughly analyze the technical sheet of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime .
Design and display
The new Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime presents a design very in line with the storyline proposed so far by the Korean firm. In this sense we hardly find stridencies. We are facing a fairly large team in terms of size, since it complies with dimensions of 144.8 x 72.1 x 8.6 millimeters and with a weight of up to 156 grams , with the battery included. The weight is not too high because the company has continued to bet on plastic materials, with a thin and pleasant to the touch casing that greatly facilitates holding. If the forecasts are not twisted, Samsung will put it on sale in two basic shades: white and gray, although it is always possible that alternative versions in more striking colors eventually end up appearing. Everything will be seen.
But the fact that the equipment has relevant dimensions has in part to do with the size of the screen. And is that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has an integrated 5-inch multi-touch panel , equipped with a qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and a density of up to 222 dots per inch, which means that we will have the opportunity to view high-quality multimedia content. quality.
Camera and multimedia
And we continue to analyze what turns out to be one of the most important sections of this team: the camera. And it is that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime integrates a camera with 8 megapixel sensor we prove useful for imaging in a more than acceptable quality, as well as video recording in HD (FullHD 1920 x 1080 pixels @ 30fps) . To these basic functions we have to add the automatic focus , the face and smile detector , the HDR mode and the Flash, an essential tool for capturing images in poorly lit scenes or even at night. The second camera that this equipment brings with it is the one that will fascinate users who are looking for high quality for their selfies . And in the front we find an excellent 5 megapixel sensor we will capture photographs in a higher quality than any other mid - range device, in addition to video calls clear and sharp .
Another great advantage of this smartphone is precisely in its multimedia potential . Thanks to its large five-inch screen, users will have the opportunity to enjoy their favorite content in a more comfortable way, being able to review photo albums or watch movies without losing their eyes. In principle, the device will be perfectly capable of playing multimedia content in most of the most used formats, which includes photos, music and videos in the following compatible extensions: MP3, Midi, AAC, AMR, WAV, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, 3GP, MP4 and 3GPP, among others. It also includes FM Radio with RDS and the ability to connect to different streaming content platformssuch as YouTube or Spotify , which greatly expands the entertainment possibilities of users on board the equipment.
Power and memory
And at the heart of each terminal we find its main treasure: the one that actually determines its performance. In this case, we can indicate that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has an integrated quad-core processor capable of operating at a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz. This chip combines its potential with 1 GB of RAM , which means that we will have chance to get a good performance when executing its main applications and functions. Be that as it may, we would recommend users not to overload the computer with a lot of content and apps that could slow down its operation.
Luckily, the equipment is planted with a good storage capacity: 8 GB that the user can use to save all kinds of content (music, photos, videos, applications…) and always carry them with them. Also, if this capacity falls short, you will always have the possibility to expand this capacity with microSD cards of up to 64 GB .
Operating system and applications
As is usual in the vast majority of Samsung equipment (especially those of the Galaxy family ), this device works through the Google icon platform . We refer, of course, to Android 4.4.4 KitKat, the latest version that the Mountain View company has brought to the fore. It has the latest improvements provided for this operating system and offers users a much more agile and faster experience on board the terminal. We would highlight, on the other hand, the access that the owners of this device will get right out of the box to the main Google applications and services. We refer, among others, to the following: Google Search, Google Maps, Navigation, Google Now, Gmail, YouTube, Google Plus, Picasa or Google Play , the app store from which users can download thousands and thousands of applications and extra multimedia content.
How could it be otherwise, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is also a well-prepared device for connectivity . Although it does not keep compatibility with 4G / LTE networks , the device offers users access to 3G networks , which also guarantees an agile download of data and a more than correct navigation. Logically, the device also offers access to WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS wireless networks , an essential tool to use the phone as a dedicated GPS navigator, but also to enjoy the geolocation functions that many applications require. In the section on physical connections we have to have the basics. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime It offers a microUSB input, a 3.5 mm output for headphones and a microSD slot that will help us to expand the internal memory of the equipment.
Autonomy and availability
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is very well endowed in the autonomy section. In fact, it has a built-in high-capacity battery (specifically 2,600 milliamps ) that can offer, always according to Samsung data , a range of 17 hours in 3G talk and 9 hours of browsing. However, it should be borne in mind that the battery life can always vary depending on external factors such as the state of the network, the applications and functions that the user keeps active, the state of the battery or the temperature itself that reaches the equipment.
Samsung has not yet offered specific data on the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime . Despite this, we know that the smartphone will be on sale in the first instance in India (the country in which it was initially presented) for $ 250 , an amount that could be exported directly to Europe, which means that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime in Spain would have a free cost of 250 euros . We will see, in the coming weeks, if the device ends up landing in our country. Be that as it may, we will remain attentive to offer you all the official details that arise in this regard.
