Samsung is launching a new dual-SIM smartphone, the Galaxy S DUOS running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. While it comes with the name Galaxy S, the handset actually looks more like the firm’s flagship Galaxy S III. With dual-SIM capability, the phone offers added communication flexibility, allowing users to manage two phone numbers, say one for work and one for personal, from a single device. The Dual SIM Always on feature also lets you to receive calls on one SIM number while taking a call from the other.
The main selling point of the Galaxy S DUOS is its dual-SIM capability, so don’t expect too much on the hardware. It is powered by a 1GHz processor and runs Android 4.0. You can find a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a front camera, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS and 802.11b/g/n WiFi connectivity. It packs 4GB internal memory and a microSD card slot for up to 32GB cards. Not sure if the 1500mAh battery is enough for daily use with two SIM cards.
Samsung’s GALAXY S DUOS runs Android 4.9 with TouchWiz UI. It supports quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band 900.2100 HSDPA mobile networks. It will be available from September starting in Europe.
