MARKET LEADER Samsung announced the latest addition to its Android line-up today, the dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S Duos.
Outed with little fanfare on Samsung's blog, the oddly-named Galaxy S Duos is a cheap, dual SIM sporting alternative to the company's flagship smartphone.
"The Galaxy S Duos offers all the style and high-end performance users expect from GALAXY smartphones. It also affords the convenience of Dual SIM access, giving the smartphone added communication flexibility," Samsung boasts.
Sporting a near identical design to the Galaxy S3, the handset arrives running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Samsung's Touchwiz user interface (UI), which dresses its downsized 4in 480x800 touchscreen.
Measuring 10.5mm thick, the Galaxy S Duos also features a 1GHz single-core processor, a 5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, 4GB of internal storage expandable to 32GB and a 1500mAh battery.
Samsung's blog post also suggests that a 4G version might be in the works, as it says that specifications might differ on the LTE version.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos will be available in Europe from September, although it's still unclear whether the phone will make its way to UK shelves. Samsung was unavailable for comment at the time of writing. µ
