Samsung Teases New Smartphone Launch in India: Is It the Galaxy Grand 3?

Written By:

Samsung has been in tough spot lately. The company recently reported a big slump in quarterly profits as the sudden decline in its handset business. Its Galaxy S5 is not selling as well; the company's mid-end range handsets too failed to stop Xiaomi's growing dominance in Asia. In other words, the last year seemed like a worst period ever for the tech giant.

Though Samsung is still very popular, the company has been declining all over. Recently however, there have been signs of revival. And if the latest reports are to be believed, Samsung is expected to introduce the new smartphone with mid-range specifications.
