From the outside, Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Grand Android 'phablet' looks almost identical to the firm's high-end Galaxy Note II.
Similarly sized screen (5-inch display compared to the Galaxy Note II's 5.55-inch display), consistently placed rear camera lens, almost identical industrial design.
To an untrained eye from a reasonable distance, then, it's fair to say the Galaxy Grand and the Galaxy Note II are indistinguishable.
Except they aren't.
Perhaps the biggest giveaway is the Galaxy Grand's 800x480 resolution. I mean, a WVGA 5-inch screen just doesn't cut it any more in the increasingly competitive smartphone landscape.
Furthermore, the Galaxy Grand is powered by a dual-core processor (running at 1.2GHz), which seems a strange decision on the part of Samsung given the proliferation of quad-core blowers.
Saying that, the Galaxy Grand does run Android 4.1.2 (a.k.a. Jelly Bean) out of the box, sports 1GB of RAM, and packs a 2100mAh battery under the hood.
So, what exactly is this brand-new device? A mid-range carbon copy of the Galaxy Note II, or an enlarged underpowered Galaxy S III?
