Samsung quietly launches 5-inch WVGA Galaxy Grand Neo
Samsung has quietly launched the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303190==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/12/01/third.in.galaxy.grand.range.launch.expected.before .mobile.world.congress/" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy Grand Lite</a>, with a listing on the Samsung Levant <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303191==http://www.samsung.com/levant/consumer/mobile-phones/mobile-phones/smart-phones/GT-I9060MKAAFR" rel='nofollow'>website</a> renaming it the Galaxy Grand Neo. Just as previously rumored under the model number GT-I9060, the follow-up to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303192==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/11/25/samsung.shaves.close.to.1mm.off.thickness.for.upgr aded.galaxy.grand/" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy Grand 2</a> is a mid-range offering, using a 5.01-inch 480x800 TFT display, with a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash supported by a front-facing VGA version. <br />
<br />
Inside is a quad-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, expandable by microSD, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303189==http://www.unwiredview.com/2014/01/28/samsung-galaxy-grand-neo-lite-gets-official-already-available-in-the-netherlands-for-e260/" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> <em>Unwired View</em>. The Galaxy Grand Neo has support for HSPA+ 21Mbps, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-Fi, GPS, dual SIM card slots, and DLNA, though no LTE connectivity, and its 2,100mAh battery is said to give up to 8 hours of 3G internet usage or video playback, and up to 11 hours of 3G talk time. <br />

<br />
Software-wise, it uses Android 4.2, and despite the middling specifications, it ships with some features typically reserved for the more high-specification Galaxy devices, such as Multi Window and Pop-up Play for multitasking, and a modified keyboard for one-handed operation. <br />
<br />
Samsung has not yet revealed the price of the Galaxy Grand Neo, nor regional availability, though a retailer in the Netherlands is apparently selling the smartphone for €260 ($355).<br />
