Among the key features of the new Samsung Galaxy Grand include sporting a 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor, a 2 MP HD camera in front and an 8 MP camera at the back, along with 8GB user memory with 1GB of RAM, which can be upgraded up to 64GB via a microSD memory card.

These include Direct Call, where users can automatically make a call by raising the device up to the ear; Popup Video that allows users to watch video in a pop-up window; and S Voice that can be used to control the phone.
