Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo gets an official launch

The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo right now says one thing loud and clear. Samsung has bigger fish to fry at next month's MWC event in Barcelona.

It's a phone that has leaked on a number of occasions and as such, a phone we feel we know fairly well already. But it's always nice to get the official nod from Samsung, even if the company has launched it with pretty much no fanfare and left out one or two vital details.

Let's go with what we do know. We now know, thanks to an official Samsung listing, that the Grand Neo packs a 5.01-inch 800 x 480 resolution display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash on the rear, a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of storage, which you can expand via microSD card, a 2,100mAh battery and Bluetooth 4.0. 4G doesn't seem to be listed for the phone. But that's not a surprise.

We also don't know which version of Android will be on here either. Previous leaks have indicated the rather dated Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. We are guessing that's the case. Talking of things we don't know, Samsung is being pretty coy about the launch details too.  In Europe, it will sell for 260 Euros SIM-free, but for the UK, so far nothing.

If we get the update on that for the UK, we'll let you know. But there is the chance that Samsung could skip the UK with this particular handset, especially if it drops better hardware at MWC next month. As we said, we'll keep digging on that front.
