Samsung Galaxy Prime Selfie Smartphone Leaks in First Images

These days you can’t even turn around at the supermarket without spotting a few people taking a selfie of themselves and their favorite brand of cereal. And the world’s greatest tech manufacturers have been feeding this frenzy obsessively with products especially designed to fuel this passion.

We have seen the selfie brush, the selfie hat, and the selfie camera shaped like a perfume bottle, but still these remain peculiar products most customers will never actually buy. Sure it’s fun to look at them and talk about them, but most of us won’t spend cash on them.

Samsung is prepping a selfie-friendly camera

What about a selfie phone then? Such a device sounds more reasonable and bound to attract more selfie lovers. Anyway, Samsung has been rumored to be working on a selfie-centric phone called Galaxy Grand Prime. Those of you who got your attention piqued by the news should know that the first images showing the smartphone have already been leaked online courtesy of GSM Arena. Unofficial word on the street has it that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime will come equipped with an 8MP main camera with 1080p video capture. The photos we’re talking about show us the frontal camera, which boasts 5MP resolution, an important improvement from the 2MP we were accustomed to seeing in previous Grand devices.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime reduces screen size

However, compared to the Galaxy Grand 2, the screen size of the Prime model has been reduced. The former had a 5.25-inch 720p screen, while the new model sports a 5-inch display with qHD resolution. The first-gen Grand model came with the same 5-inch form factor but took advantage of WVGA resolution instead. Like previous models, the Galaxy Grand Prime will come equipped with dual SIM and offer 3G connectivity (HSPA up to 42Mbps download and 5.7Mbps upload). Other important specifications include Wi-Fi a/n/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). For the time, being we don’t know the powerhouse Samsung will use with the Grand Prime model.

The original source leaking these photographs comes from Vietnam, and customers in that country will be able to pick up the handset starting this October. However, availability dates for the rest of the world remain unknown. Even so, if you crave a selfie-centric phone with a high-res front-facing camera with dual SIM, you have some options on your hand, like the Sony Xperia C3 Dual or the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM. The choice is yours.
