Other specifications revealed by the FCC documents for the Galaxy Grand include an Exynos 4412 quad-core 1.4GHz processor, Android 4.1.1, JellyBean, NFC (near-field communications), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, 2100mAh battery, 4G LTE, and an appearance similar to the Galaxy S3.

The Galaxy Grand is expected to launch in Korea sometime in the near future and the Galaxy S4 will be released in 2013.
