In what seems like its 1,457th new smartphone release this year, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Grand 2, a new device that is sized somewhere in between its Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone and its Galaxy Note 3 flagship phablet. The new device features a 5.25-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera, 1.5GB of RAM, a 2,600mAh battery and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Samsung didn’t mention pricing or availability for the device but given its less-than-cutting-edge specs we can assume that it will targeted more as a mid-range device in emerging markets. Samsung has released so many smartphones this year that it’s difficult to keep track but an incomplete list includes the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy S4 mini, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, the Galaxy S4 Google Edition, the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy S4 mini La Fluer.
