Samsung has several dual-SIM phone offerings but it has been reported that the Korean handset maker will be adding a new one to its line-up. Samsung looks to corner every category and seems like it is going to make the competition in the dual-SIM category even tighter. Most of Samsung’s dual-SIM offerings belong to the low-end class but the new offering is a bit mid-level.
Samsung is reportedly prepping the Galaxy S Duos S7562 handset which features a design that looks almost similar to the Galaxy S III it could actually be called the poor man’s Galaxy S III. The Samsung Galaxy S Duos will have a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz SnapdragonMSM7227A chip and a 512MB of RAM. Not quite impressive specs but then again, this is a mid-level offering and the star feature is of course the dual-SIM feature. This will go head to head with the HTC Desire V which is also a dual-SIM phone.
The rest of the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S Duos include a 5-megapixel back camera, a VGA front camera and 4GB of storage and Android 4.0 OS. Here are the rest of the specs:
