Ozra Batt, corporate sales manager of International Marketing Services (IMS) – the authorized distributor of Samsung mobile in Nepal, said the successor of Galaxy Grand will come packed with some interesting features. “We are confident that the phone will be popular in Nepal,” she added.
Samsung launched Grand 2 in Indian on December 3 with prices starting at INR 22,000. IMS officials said the phablet will be priced between Rs 35,000 and Rs 38,000 in the Nepali market.
The dual-SIM phablet runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and features a 5.25-inch HD TFT display. It has 720×1280 pixels resolution with 280 ppi compared to 480×800 resolution with 187ppi of the Grand.

According to the company, Grand 2 has 1.9MP front camera and 8MP rear camera that supports HD video recording. It has LED flash digital image stabilization feature which helps to take clear shots even in low light.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is thinner than its predecessor as it is 8.9mm thick and weighs just 163 grams. It uses 2600mAh battery compared to the 2100mAh found in the Grand promising up to 10 hours of playback and 17 hours of talk time. It supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, Micro-USB and 3G (HSPA+) connectivity.
The Galaxy Grand 2 also has Group Play feature which Samsung introduced with its flagship Galaxy S4 phone. It allows users to play music or games together as well as share documents. Grand 2 will be available in three colors — black, pink and white.
