Samsung Launches Galaxy S Duo

Samsung announced the Galaxy S Duos on Monday, the newest addition to the company’s Galaxy smartphone lineup.

Sporting a design similar to Samsung’s popular Galaxy S III smartphone, the Galaxy S Duos comes with one feature not found on many smartphones: the ability to support two SIM cards.

Dual-SIM support would allow you to have two different phones numbers, running on two different networks, on the same phone. For instance, if your work number is on MTN and you use Globacom in your personal life, you could pop both SIM cards in the Galaxy S Duos and use the same phone for both accounts.

“Its unique ‘Dual SIM Always On’ feature allows you to receive calls on one SIM number while taking a call from the other, ensuring that you can manage both personal and work commitments without ever missing a call.” Samsung said in a blog post announcing the phone.

The Galaxy S Duos has a 4-inch 480x 800 TFT touchscreen display and ships with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Under the hood, the phone has a 1GHz processor and has 4GB of built-in storage. It also has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

While on the surface the handset looks similar to the Galaxy S III, it’s significantly different in some key ways. Specifically, the Galaxy S III has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1,280 x 720 resolution.

The Galaxy S III also has a higher-resolution 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and comes with 16 or 32GB of built-in storage. A number of other features are a cut above the S Duos on the spec sheet as well.

The Samsung Galaxy S Duos will be available next month in Europe, with no word on when or if it will ever head to Nigeria.
