Samsung to release dual-SIM Galaxy Note 5 in the Philippines
In an interview with local representatives of Samsung Philippines, they shared with us that a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Note 5 will be released in the Philippines. This follows the same move they made with the Galaxy S6 when they also released the dual-SIM version.
This information has not yet been officially revealed to the public but Samsung PH is already working with distributors in shipping the Duos version within the week.
The international version will still be single-SIM, but the ones that will be officially released in the Philippines will be the Note 5 Duos (as per the naming convention used by Samsung).
Again, this puts the focus on a secondary SIM slot is lieu of that missing microSD card slot. Just like the Galaxy S6, only the first SIM card slot will have LTE although both trays will support nano-SIM.
