Although Samsung officially introduced the Galaxy Grand 2 in India more than two weeks ago, it’s still unclear when exactly the smartphone goes on sale.Only a handful of authorized resellers listed the smartphone and offered customers the option to pre-book the Galaxy Grand 2 in exchange for a small fee that would be deducted from the handset’s final price.
Today, AndroidOS reports Samsung kicked off pre-booking for the Galaxy Grand 2 as well. However, unlike other online retailers, Samsung is asking slightly for more money from those who wish to pre-book the Galaxy Grand 2 through its official online store.
In this regard, Android fans in India who wish to pre-book the Galaxy Grand 2 via Samsung will have to pay Rs 2,000 ($32 / €24), which, of course, will be adjusted in the final sale price of the handset.
Speaking of which, Samsung has yet to confirm the amount for which the Galaxy Grand 2 will sell in India. The South Korean company stated the smartphone will be available for a price between Rs 22,999 ($370 / €270) and Rs 24,999 ($400 / €295) outright.
It’s also unclear exactly when the Galaxy Grand 2 hits shelves in India, but given the fact that pre-booking has already started, we expect the smartphone to arrive by the end of this month.
For those unfamiliar with the phone’s specs sheet, here is a quick round up of the main features. Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and offer dual-SIM support.
The smartphone is equipped with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, which is complemented by 1.5GB of RAM. It also packs 8GB of internal memory and microSD memory card for storage expansion (up to 64GB).
