Samsung Galaxy S Duos, Galaxy Y Duos Lite announced

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.

    The price for the S is a bit high but what the heck, it supports dual sim.

    • The one mentioned above is Samsung Galaxy Y Duos LITE or in other country Samsung Galaxy Pocket Duos..and different on Galaxy Y duos we currently have on the Philippines..

  4. Samsung Galaxy S Duos = poor man’s Samsung Galaxy S3.

    I see similarities between Galaxy S Duos and Galaxy S3. Galaxy S Duos’ looks might be a selling point for me because it really looks like a miniature version of the Galaxy S3.

    Price is a bit high for local consumers though. They might lower it down few months after the release.

    • Then don’t. No one’s forcing you to. By the way brush up on your grammar. “…poor battery life, an ugly icons…” should be: “…poor battery life, ugly icons…”

    • @alvinjane I share your sentiments about Samsung. Their entry level and mid-range phones are a bit pretty much overpriced because they know they are very popular in the market. There are a lot of better phones out there with better prices for the right specs.

  7. HI, I would like to ask if its better to buy a huawei modem or i just use the 2nd slot sim for dual phones such as this galaxy duo for my internet sim? For sharing to my kids the internet (hotspot)? Which is better in terms of battery life? Speed of internet? Thanks.

    3G on only 1 SIM makes these dead to me. Japan is 3G-only, data AND voice, and in the US more and more carriers are starting to shut down the GSM side of their networks too.
