Rumors about an upcoming successor to the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 have finally received a boost in credibility, with benchmark results of the device surfacing.
The set of benchmarks for the Galaxy Grand 3 was spotted on the GFXBench Database and gave an inside look on what’s under the hood. The device will sport a larger 5.5-inch display with a 1280×720 pixels resolution, up from the 5.2-inch display of the Grand 2. It will be powered by a new 64-bit, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, bringing improved performance. Graphics will be handled by an Adreno 306 GPU. The device will also have 1.5GB of RAM and 12GB of internal storage, which we expect to actually be 16GB with Android and TouchWiz taking up space. The cameras are 13MP rear facing and 5MP front facing, both capable of 1080p video recording. At the moment, the device is expected to run Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 is an upgrade over its predecessor, the Grand 2. Competition in the mid-range market is strong as always but perhaps with the introduction of the new 64-bit processor, perhaps the Grand 3 will be able to stand out.
