There is a new budget smartphone in town from Samsung titled as the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+. It has been also released as the Galaxy J2 Prime in some part of the world. The device is quite similar compared to the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. There were some leaks and rumors about this upcoming mid-range phone and now it’s officially here. To learn more about this phone including the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ South Africa price and specs, keep reading.
While there are some attractive looking phones in the high-end range, there is not much to look forward to when it comes to entry level Samsung phones. It’s the same old design that can be easily recognized by anyone who are familiar with Samsung phone designs. Another notable thing is, this phone features only 960 x 540 pixels resolution which is disappointing as most of the phones are aiming for minimum 720p resolution nowadays. If you are planning to get this phone and waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+, it will be available in three different colors: Gold, White and Gray. It’s quite fat for a budget phone and is 8.9mm thin. Like most of the recently released devices this one offers both single SIM and dual SIM option. There is the Asus Zenfone 2 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 if brand is not something you are worried about.
To make sure users get a smooth Android Marshmallow 6.0 operating system experience, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ includes a Mediatek MT6737T quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. There is only one storage option: 32GB but it can be expanded to up to 256GB using the microSD card slot. While it might not offer completely smooth experience but it should be enough for performing basic Android tasks. If you are looking for some of the best high-end phones, there is the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7. However, these are way more expensive compared to the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+.
One of the great things about using entry level phones is great battery life. This budget phone from Samsung includes 2600mAh battery which should last minimum 1-2 days if you are an average user. For capturing pictures, you get an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera for taking selfies. Other than these, the phone includes all the basic connectivity options like Wi-Fi, NFC, FM Radio, Bluetooth and GPS. If price is not a problem for you than you can check out the Asus Zenfone Max 2016 for a phone with bigger battery. It’s slightly more expensive compared to the Samsung Galax Grand Prime+ South Africa price but the battery is quite big.
As mentioned earlier the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ is a budget phone. It will cost around 550AED or SAR (~1100 EGP) when it’s here. It’s already available in some places which means the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime+ release date South Africa can be expected sometimes in November, 2016.
