Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 Benchmark

Samsung is already gearing up for some launches in the coming days, ahead of the flagship Galaxy S6 launch in the first half of 2015, as we now see the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 being leaked through the benchmark website GFXBench, after the all-metal Galaxy A7‘s specifications were found through the same source.

Samsung has tasted a good success in the Galaxy Grand series, especially with the first gen. Grand, which back then had no serious competition in that price range. The codename of the device spotted on GFXBench is SM-G7200, and that probably is the Grand 3, though this isn’t yet confirmed.

According to the listing, the device will have a 5.5-inch 720p display, and the internal specs include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (64-bit SoC) and 1.5GB RAM. This is quite an advancement from the predecessor, but only on the processor side, because the Grand 2 too had 1.5GB RAM, but it was powered by Snapdragon 400 processor. The GPU support is by Adreno 306 GPU, and the clocking speed of the Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor is 1.2 GHz.

Another improvement we notice, is with the cameras. While the smartphone is going to have a 13-megapixel rear camera with Full HD video recording, there is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on offer for selfies. Samsung is making sure the device is running the latest software, thus the Grand 3 will be on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. With the 16GB internal storage, the Galaxy Grand 3 is expected to allow MicroSD card storage expansion.

The other details we see, include a Single SIM capability, so a Dual SIM variant might appear later on, just like the Grand Duos and Grand 2 Duos in the past. These specifications look decent enough, except for the RAM, because in the Grand 2, it was only about 850MB available without any apps running in the device.

If Samsung manages to keep the pricing in a good range for the Grand 3, the brand value can still bring in some good response from the customers, because at a price range where Grand 2 is available, several better devices are available now. Expect the Grand 3 to be announced anytime during November 2014.

    better processors better camera better cpu better performance

    • Suraj Racharla

      Yes everything about this smartphone is going to be better. Samsung always improved every device and I am expecting this device to also be improved. Also a slight price hike is expected!!

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    bettter in all aspects

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    and i am sure it will be made of metal body

    • Suraj Racharla

      Yes of course it will be. It Samsung’s big releases in the budjet phone market and I think this phone is going to purchase everyone in the same category!!

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    Grand 3 really going to be the best budget smartphone by samsung but the question is about the price..

    • Suraj Racharla

      Price will slighty higher as always but they will offer about more features so don’t worry !!

  • Suraj Racharla

    they never spend time for the Samsung grand 3 regarding design. In north America its all about design and build quality

  • Joshua Akinsola

    processor could be stronger maybe 1.5 but overall good specs for a good phone

    • Suraj Racharla

      Yes the processer could have been better. But I have always nofixed low specs on the galaxy grand devices anyways. The galaxy grand device is meant for people who want big phones but dont have a theory to buy them. The galaxy offers that but cuts down on the processer and RAM. So I am not surprised to see that

  • Jugal Mudoi

    No 2gb ram? I was supposed that Grand 3 will have at least 2gb ram… but I’m happy for the camera improvement, so much excited for this phone. Hope you’ll review it at the earliest once it release…

    • Suraj Racharla

      The galaxy grand is a phone meant for people with big tastes but low money budget. The ram not there makes sense because they have to cut corners at some place to save money. The camera improvement is very spectacular. I can wait to see how the photos turn out and I hope PhonesRadar does an article in this !!

  • Arindam Borgohain

    Waiting for this phone.

    • Suraj Racharla

      I know alot of people waiting for this phone. People are saying this is going to be Samsung’s best grand device yet and many things are expected. A better processer,metal design, and altoghether a much better touchwiz expirience.Excited for the behemoth to arrive

  • processor could be stronger maybe 1.5 but overall good specs for a good phone

  • im hoping to see them actually focus on design for the grand 3 and work on a metal profile!! thats very important here in the US!

  • Shanky Yadav

    I am thinking that it will also be going to launch with metal body as metal body is going common and genuine and hence increases the durability of the smartphone but I am not sure that it will get 2 or 3 gb of Ram because earlier devices just got 1 and 1. 5 gb Ram and also this time it is gonna the best specs too but at this stage they should launch it with android lollipop

  • Suraj Racharla

    Yes I have to agree with
    The new trend within Smasung devices is the new metal edge trend. It adds class and adds more value to the device. It also goes great with the design an I have to agree Samsung phones are rocking the metal edge.
