Earlier – Apart from the flagship smartphones that Samsung launches every year, they also come up with a variety of budget smartphone offering for the affordable market segment. The company recently launched the Galaxy note 7, which will be launching in India on August 11th. This year as well, the company has already introduced a handful of them, and it appears that they are still going to launch another one to add on to the list.

In case you forgot, the previously launched Galaxy Grand was launched two years back, and it is just about the time that this is device gets an upgrade.

But we’re sure more, and more new info like the specs details, pricing, and availability will be revealed in coming weeks.

    Good product but battery capacity is still very small. Samsung must expand their smartphone’s battery capacity.

    Shakespeare said “what’s in the name” but for samsung’s nomenclature everything is in the name, it doesn’t matter if the device sucks in the budget segment but it’s name should be big…
