Samsung announces Galaxy Grand with 1.4GHz quad-core processor, LTE supportClose on the heels of Tuesday reports that Samsung had released its Galaxy Grand handset equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 5-inch low-resolution screen, it is now being reported that the company has announced another version of the Galaxy Grand.

According to the latest reports, the new Galaxy Grand version announced by Samsung boasts a 1.4GHz quad-core processor as well as LTE capability; and will probably be available only in South Korea.

The newly-reported Galaxy Grand handset will also have 1 GB RAM - also like its presently-available counterpart -, along with a decent 2,100mAh; an 8-megapixel back camera; and a 2-megapixel front camera.

In addition, the South Korea-bound Galaxy Grand will also feature T-DMB, thus bringing TV to users' handsets, as well as 8GB onboard memory, expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card. The connectivity options coming aboard the new Galaxy Grand handset will include Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC with S Beam.

The handset, which will run the Android OS 4.1 `Jelly Bean' version, will also feature the TouchWiz user interface, and the multi-window advantage to go together with the bigger screen size.
