World smartphone leader Samsung is reportedly prepping to launch two new mid-range smartphones in India next month.

Samsung, in a bid to thwart impending threat from local player Micromax, has planned to release two new affordable smartphones - Galaxy Grand 2 and Galaxy Grand Neo, successors of the current mid-range models - Galaxy Grand and Grand Quattro respectively in India, reported BGR.

The revelation comes close on the heels of reports of a 5.25-inch Samsung phablet making rounds across various certification sites. So far, three variants of the same device - SM-G7102, SM-G7105 (LTE variant) and SM-G7106, have been spotted at US government-owned FCC (Federal Communication Commission), Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group) and the Chinese telecom authority, TENNA certification websites, leading many to believe that this unnamed phablet may be the rumoured Galaxy Grand successor.

According to data found on certification websites, this mystery Samsung phone is 147.0 mm tall, 75.1 mm wide and flaunts a 5.25-inch (diagonal) HD (720x1280p) display. It reportedly runs on Android v4.3 Jelly Bean powered by 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB RAM and comes with a 8.0-megapixel main camera and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera.

Going by the specifications list, this unnamed handset is not a high-end model, but qualifies to be a mid-range phablet that is probably an advanced version of the dual-core Galaxy Grand.
