World smartphone leader, Samsung is reportedly working on a mid-range phablet targeted at emerging markets in Asia.
Technology website, PhoneArena has stumbled upon the new Samsung phone codenamed SM-G7102 on the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) website.
The device reportedly measures 147.0 mm tall and 75.1 mm wide and boasts of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS/EDGE connectivity features. The FCC site offered very little insight on Samsung's mystery device, but certainly incited curiosity among many tech enthusiasts.
Up on further probing, the same SM-G7102 handset was again spotted on two sites - one at Zauba, a cargo based logistics website, which revealed that device has been imported from Korea to Delhi for trialing and evaluation purpose in India. In the description section, Samsung apparently disclosed that SM-G7102 sports a 5.25-inch display and pack dual-SIM slots, whereas Samsung's UA (User Agent profile) page showed that the smartphone would boast of a HD (1280x720p) resolutions screen and run on Android v4.3 Jelly Bean.
Going by the leaked details, many believe that this mid-range Samsung handset may be the successor of the 5.0-inch dual-core phablet Galaxy Grand, which made its global debut in December, 2012. It is currently available for purchase in India for around ₹18,400.
