Just because you like a phone with a big screen doesn’t necessarily mean you’re looking for a model with a big price tag. Samsung’s Galaxy Grand 2 is a new phone that’s got the screen size of a high-end Galaxy Note, but the mid-range features of a less expensive phone.

The Galaxy Grand 2 features a 5.25 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage.

The phone has a microSD card slot in case you need more space, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, an 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front-facing camera. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software, sports a 2600mAh battery, and runs Samsung’s TouchWiz software with apps including ChatOn and Samsung Hub.

What you don’t get is the S Pen features of a Galaxy Note or the high-resolution display of a Galaxy S. The phone also supports HSPA+ cellular networks, but not LTE.

It’ll likely be up to wireless carriers to set the actual prices for the smartphone, at least in the US. But it’s a fairly safe bet that the Galaxy Grand 2 will cost less than a Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 2, but probably more than a Motorola Moto G.

  1. So it is a noteless Note 2, which ironically is of note.
    I’ll make a note of it… not literally of course.
