Galaxy Grand NeoEntry-level 5-inch handset for €260

Last year's Samsung Galaxy Grand sought to bring users a big-screen Android experience without a similarly large price tag. Now it seems we have a successor for 2014 — the Galaxy Grand Neo, a 5.01-incher with a WVGA display, quad-core CPU and HSPA+ (21Mbps) data speeds. The Grand Neo sports a traditional plastic-backed Samsung design with silver trim, along with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung's TouchWix UI. There's also 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD), an 5-megapixel camera and 2100mAh battery. Not the specciest of specs for sure, but we're looking at an entry-level product here.

The Grand Neo has shown up on Samsung's Levant website alongside a spec sheet and photo gallery, and a price for the device — €260 off contract — has appeared on Dutch outlet Belsimpel, where it's available to buy.

The Galaxy Grand Neo's arrival follows the emergence in recent days of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo — a mid-range version of the Note 3 sporting a smaller screen and cut-down specs.
