Samsung has finally announced the much talked about Galaxy Grand (I9080/I9082). The smartphone can safely be called a Phablet as it has a 5-inch LCD display with 800×480 resolution. The device is actually a low to mid range replacement for the Galaxy Note II, so the pixel density of just 186 ppi, which is not that great.   The device by no means lacks in the software department, as it comes with Jelly Bean 4.1.2 out of the box with Samsung’s Touch Wiz UX UI.
