Thursday, January 24, 2013 On Tuesday, Samsung launched its Galaxy Grand smartphone in India and today, the Korean smartphone maker has launched the same Galaxy Grand in its homeland but with better hardware. Samsung launched its 12.7-cm (5-inch) Galaxy Grand with a 1.2GHz dual core processor in India, while the company launched the same smartphone with a 1.4GHz quad core processor. Why?

Most Indian buyers feel that the price of Samsung Galaxy Grand is not justified in India. With the looks of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone, the Grand somewhat could not excite us with its entry in the above Rs 20,000 market. Now, the news that the Galaxy Grand is based on a quad core processor in Korea will further irk Indian buyers.

Now, coming to the price. The better Samsung Galaxy Grand is available in Korea at a price of 350,000 won or approximately Rs 17,400. So, mathematically, Samsung is offering a quad core Galaxy Grand at a price of Rs 17,400 in Korea while it is selling an inferior dual core based Galaxy Grand at a price of Rs 21,500 in India. Also, the Korean version comes with NFC and LTE capabilities.

Well, it seems Samsung has played it pretty smart. It has launched the inferior Grand smartphone with dual SIM capabilities and dubbed it as Galaxy Grand Duos. On the other hand, it has launched the same smartphone with better hardware in Korea and dubbed it simply as Galaxy Grand with single SIM card slot.
