Samsung Galaxy S III Neo+ unveiled in China with dual-SIM support

Ready for yet another new Samsung smartphone? Yes? Good. The company has made the Galaxy S III Neo+ official, right now just for the Chinese market (but who knows, we might see it elsewhere in the future).

This seems to confirm that Samsung likes the Neo designation, and we’re expecting it to tack it onto the Galaxy Note 3… to give us a slightly refreshed Note II.

Anyway, the Galaxy S III Neo+ hardly seems worthy of both the Neo and the + in there, as it’s basically just a dual-SIM variation of the original Galaxy S III, and one that runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean from day one. But that’s already available as an update for the S III itself, so the only benefit here seems to be the dual-SIM functionality. It’s rather odd, then, that Samsung didn’t choose to use its go-to brand for dual-SIM devices, namely Duos. Maybe this could have been the Galaxy S III Duos.

Alas, it’s not. And it comes with a 4.8-inch 720p AMOLED touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 2,100 mAh battery.
