It looks like Samsung has made their Galaxy Grand 2 smartphone available on its home soil in Korea.
The phone costs 517,000 K. Won, the equivalent of about $484 USD, which does seem pretty steep for the handset.
The Grand 2 packs a 5.25” 720p HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8MP camera, LTE-A, and a 2600mAh battery. The smartphone comes with Android 4.3 out of the box and the usual goodies associated with TouchWiz.
Design wise, expect a faux-leather backing similar to the Note series of phones, and the Grand 2 will be available in both white and black color options.
