Samsung announces the Galaxy S Duos, available in Europe in September
Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy S Duos today. This dual-SIM smartphone borrows heavily from the Galaxy S III design-wise, yet it’s got midrange specs at best. That said, the ability to hold two SIM cards at the same time will be the main selling point here. Speaking of that, the Galaxy S Duos has dual-standby, which means you can be talking through one SIM, while still being notified of an incoming call on the other. This is, frankly, how dual-SIM should have worked from day one.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos has a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 1 GHz single-core processor, a 5 MP rear camera, a secondary front-facing camera, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD expansion, all the usual connectivity options, and a 1,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Galaxy S Duos will become available in Europe first. That will happen sometime in September. After that, it’s apparently going to roll out “across other territories” – nothing more specific just yet.
