Just after Samsung launched its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, the South Korean company is working hard to make sure that people who seek affordable yet powerful smartphones are not left out. Samsung is launching slew of smart phones in India, along with Galaxy Core, it also launched a budget phone – Galaxy Fame and a mid-range category device – Galaxy Grand Quattro (Galaxy Win).
Samsung Galaxy Fame S6812 is a dual SIM smartphone running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and powered by a 1 GHz processor with 512 MB RAM. It comes with a 3.5-inch display and 5 MP auto-focus rear camera with LED flash along with a VGA camera at the front for video calling. Fame also comes with a 4 GB internal storage (with microSD support upto 32 GB) and a 1,300 mAh battery.
Price: While the Samsung India’s official website lists a price of Rs. 11,120, various online retailers are selling it for Rs. 10,900.
Samsung Galaxy Grand Quattro I8552 is known as Galaxy Win in other markets around the world but Samsung choose to keep its name Grand Quattro in India. Maybe the logic behind that is the Galaxy Grand has been doing quite well in India and Samsung wants to capitalize this brand name by keeping a similar name. Samsung Grand Quattro is also catching eyeballs for the fact that it is Samsung cheapest smartphone to come with a quad core processor.
Yes the Galaxy Grand Quattro is packed with a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8625Q Snapdragon 200 processor and Adreno 203 GPU. It is supported by 1GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory which is expandable upto 32 GB using a microSD card and runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. While these facts are good, the display is quite disappointing. Although it comes with a 4.7 inch display, the resolution is only WVGA (800x480p) resolution and 199 ppi pixel density. It also comes with a 5 MP rear camera with flash and capable of shooting 720p videos, along with a VGA camera at the front for video calling. Grand Quattro is also a dual SIM smartphone with 2000mAh battery.
Price: While the Samsung India’s official website lists a price of Rs. 18,260, various online retailers are selling it for around Rs. 16,500.
