    If you thought that Samsung would stick with the Galaxy Note series to cover the phablet market they created, then you would be mistaken. Apparently, they are bringing out a new mid-range device to cater to this growing consumer base. It is called the Galaxy Grand and has some similar, yet slimmed down features to the Galaxy Note series. Here's a few:
    • 5-inch TFT display
    • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
    • 8MP rear camera
    • Samsung’s TouchWiz UI (with additional features like "Popup Play for picture-in-picture video viewing as well as S Voice and enhanced gesture support.")
    At first, the device will be available in Asian markets, and will be available as the dual-SIM GT-I9082 followed later by a standard single SIM GT-I9080. In case you aren't sure what a dual-SIM is, here's a quote with the details,

    Dual SIM seems like a very interesting concept! I'd like to see how this is implemented, and what potential drawbacks might exist. I can definitely see a benefit in having this capability, although I don't know that I have a use for it myself.
