Two new dual-SIM smartphones were recently launched by Samsung — the Galaxy S Duos and the Galaxy Y Duos Lite (also known as the Galaxy S Duos S7562 and Galaxy Pocket Duos S5302 in international markets).
For starters, the Galaxy S Duos has a 4-inch WVGA TFT display with 233 ppi pixel density and is powered by a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A5 processor with a Adreno 200 GPU under the hood. It features a Smart Dual SIM function which allows both SIM cards to be active at the same time. It supports 3G and HSPA but won’t allow two data connections simultaneously.
It also sports a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, 1500 mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
It sells for 256 Euros or around Php13,500.
The Galaxy Y Duos Lite or the Galaxy Pocket Duos, as the name suggest is a lightweight smartphone both in specs and price range. It carries a 2.8-inch QVGA display, a 832 MHz ARM 11 processor, 3GB of internal storage, 1200mAh battery and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
It also has the same Smart Dual SIM function as the S Duos. It supports 3G connections but only on the primary SIM.
The Galaxy Y Duos Lite sells for 100 Euros or roughly Php 5,300.
