Samsung has confirmed yet another smartphone mode, which frankly comes as no surprise to anyone. The Galaxy Grand original was followed by Galaxy Grand 2 which was announced just a couple of months back. The latest addition to the Galaxy Grand series is the Galaxy Grand Lite (GT-I9060). This model will take its place in the lineup between Galaxy Grand and Galaxy Grand 2.
Samsung is expected to showcase the Galaxy Grand Lite in the Mobile World Congress which will be held in late February next year. Grand Lite will have a 5 inch WVGA screen, 1 GB of RAM, 1.2 GHz processor, 8 GB worth of internal memory which can be expanded using the microSD card slot and a battery of 2100 mAh.
Most of the above mentioned specs make the device a kind of cross between Grand and Grand 2. One of the few areas were it differs from them is the camera, which is 5 MP on the rear and a VGA camera on the front. As of now, the information is that the Grand Lite will run on Android 4.2 out of the box, but this might change and its expected to come with atleast Android 4.3.
Speculation is that the phone might also come equipped with two SIM slots, which is popular in countries like China and India. Grand Lite will be available in 3 colors as of now: Orange, Midnight Black and Lime Green.
