It seems Samsung
is getting ready to launch the earlier tipped 'selfie-focused' smartphone
called Galaxy Grand Prime in India, if an established Mumbai-based retailer is to be believed.

The selfie-focused Galaxy Grand Prime comes with 5-megapixel (wide-angle lens) front facing camera instead of the megapixel and 2-megapixel offerings on Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 and Samsung Galaxy Grand respectively. The rear camera is 8-megapixel, according to the retailer.
The Galaxy Grand Prime will run Android 4.4 KitKat and pack a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) TFT display. It is tipped to feature a 1.2GHz quad-core (unknown chipset) processor with 1GB of RAM.
The Grand Prime is said to have 8GB of internal storage with microSD card support (up to 64GB) and retailer also suggests that the Galaxy Grand Prime will come with support for 14 regional languages. The smartphone will feature a 2600mAh battery and is 8.6mm thick.
