At a time when the world is going crazy over the selfie phenomena, Samsung is rumoured to have developed its first selfie-centric smartphone. The Galaxy Grand Prime reportedly has a 5MP front-facing camera fit for clicking a great self-portrait.
It has a five inch, high definition quality (540 x 960 pixels) display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of RAM, Vietnamese website thegioididong.com reported.
The ‘selfie’ phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and is said to be equipped with an 8MP main camera which can record video in 1080p. It also has 8 GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot and a 2600 mAh battery.
According to the website, it will be priced at approximately $236 (Rs 14,000). GSMArena notes that Galaxy Grand Prime will be a dual-SIM device with 3G connectivity and is expected to arrive in October.
It’s not clear whether this model will launch globally or will be restricted to South-East Asian countries. Competitors on the selfie-front would be the Lumia 730 and the Sony Xperia C 3 both of which have a 5 megapixel front camera.
