The Korean company has launched the new Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo Plus at a price of Rs. 9,999, on its Samsung Store quietly, without any bells and whistles. The new smartphone is also now available on Amazon India.
Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo Plus India Launch Details
The smartphone has a 5.0-inch screen and has an 800*480 resolution which is low for a device with a price tag of Rs. 9,999. Though we may see some price decline once it goes on sale on Flipkart, Amazon, and Snapdeal.
The smartphone has an unknown 1.2 GHz Quadcore processor which can be either a Samsung Exynos or a Snapdragon 410 that Samsung is using in some other smartphones. (We will share the processor details, as Samsung offers more information.)
The smartphone runs on Android KitKat when Micromax Spark or Moto E or Android One which cost Rs. 5,000 run on Android Lollipop why would smart Indian buyers spend 10K on Samsung. Of course, there are some positives in the Samsung Neo plus, and loyal fans may like it.
The Samsung NEO plus has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage which can be expanded to 64 GB using a Micro SD card. The smartphone is available in 3 colors Gold, Black, and White.
The smartphone offers basic connectivity 3G/2G/edge/WIFI and Bluetooth.
The phone has a functional battery capacity of 2200 mAH which is adequate to run the smartphone for one day with moderate usage.
The mobile has 5 MP rear camera with Dual Led Flash and Autofocus and a 2 MP front camera for video calls.
The smartphone has 9.8 mm thickness that is slightly higher considering Samsung’s higher-priced smartphones now focus on slim and sleek design. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo plus weighs 160 grams, is high, considering battery and screen size.
Samsung Galaxy Neo Plus Rivals Micromax Yu Yureka and Honor 4C
The Samsung Galaxy Neo plus competes with Micromax Yu Yureka, Motorola Moto G2, Huawei Honor 4C.
Samsung Also launched the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in April, and there was a price drop for Samsung S6 around May 18. The company has been struggling in almost all segments with lower end dominated by Xiaomi, Micromax, Motorola, Samsung may need some aggressive pricing and Android Lollipop rollout on some of its models fast.
Samsung also promised Android Lollipop roll out to Samsung E5 and E7 that is yet not rolled out, and a lot of buyers are waiting.
No doubt Samsung Smartphones have good built quality. Also, the bugs, errors, and heating issues on the smartphone are way less, than I see these days on some of the low-cost smartphones.
If Samsung can roll out Android updates faster and look at aggressive pricing for the top-selling models, it can surely gain back market share in India.
