Samsung D780 DuoS coming

We’ve already talked about the reasons for successes and failures in Eastern European markets of dual SIM based Samsung DuoS D880.

One of the reasons that D880 appeal was limited – was it’s high $700 price. To tackle that issue, Samsung today is launching the new, cheaper version of it’s dual SIM handset – Samsung D780 DuoS, which is expected to retail at under 300 EUR without contract.

Instead of the popular and more expensive to produce slider, Samsung DuoS D780 is a simple candybar, with cheaper 2 megapixel camera and smaller 2.1″ QVGA display.

Full specs of Samsung D780 DuoS dual SIM phone include:

  • Triband GSM 900/1800/1900 GPRS/EDGE connectivity
  • Two SIM card simultaneous support
  • 2.1″ 262K color 320×240 px QVGA display
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Stereo FM
  • Bluetooth 2.0 A2DP
  • USB 2.0
  • MicroSD memory card slot
  • 1200 mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 115×49.6×15.7

And if the pictures and specs of Samsung DuoS D780 look familiar to you, well they look familiar for me too.

Very similar, if not the same phone was described as an upcoming Samsung P240 DuoS dual SIM handset by Samsung Russia head Yoonsoo Kim.

Also, just like P240, Samsung D780 DuoS is headed for Russian market first, with the availability in South-East Asia and Europe a bit later.

And D780 sounds to me much closer to D880, while dual SIM card functionality goes much better with “D” prefix, instead of “P” reserved for Samsung luxury branded phones like P520 Armani, and it’s canceled dual SIM Touchscreen handset P720 DuoS.

Given these facts I’m inclined to believe that Mr. Kim might have gotten the model numbers wrong and we are talking about the same handset here. Although you never know, it might just happen that Samsung has another DuoS – P240 reserved too.

    Samsung is taking the world of mobile telephony to another level. I hope that one day I will get to afford one of your great phones so that I can get a feel of what it is like to own a dual simcard phone. but untill then, keep up the spirit of making communication easier and fun too.

    Quite exciting really, this whole development. I like to see what’s up next. I would have thought that one of the ‘big’ would’ve already produced a dual-sim PDA but there’s this American company that ‘beat’ them first –> the DSTW1. Why don’t you write about that? I mean, check those specifications, it really does look quite impressive.

    I just bought this phn a week ago and so far it performs very well! I'm glad of having it as a replacement to 2 of my previous phn (motorola V3XX & motorola L6). The stylish looks is so WoW! and the features will not let you down..! Eventhough it is not 3G phn(not like Motorola V3XX)but i'm so proud of having it. The speaker is not as loud as Nokia xpressmusic but can say,somewhere there! The most interesting part, both lines are working so good at the same time and well managed(by the system). The security system of the phn is as good as Motorola…infact better since you can list the unwanted caller in the Reject List or block the number from sending unwanted sms to your phn(very secured for those commited guy who having…another affairs..hehehe..)And the FM radio is so clear either using the provided stereo earpiece or phn speaker itself. The battery? Well,not bad at all..! And also it come with a CD (to install PC Suite)and with that you can edit any songs/picture to be used in your phn as a ringtone or what so ever..Ok guys,thats all i can say about this D-780 infact lot more to tell but i think enough for me to say that i'm SATISFIED..!
