In a recent development, the much-awaited dual SIM Android smartphone Galaxy S Duos has been made official by Samsung. The handset will first hit European markets followed by a worldwide roll-out from September. While the Samsung S Duos looks very much similar to Android heavyweight Galaxy S3, and consumers are assuming that it is the dual-SIM version of the highly popular handset.

The Galaxy S Duos sports a 4-inch WVGA TFT screen with 480 x 800 resolution, 5MP camera, 4GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot and 1,500 mAh battery. The handset runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and is powered by 1GHz Cortex A5 single-core processor. On the connectivity front, the Samsung Galaxy S Duos supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0. The device comes preloaded with Samsung's ChatOn communication services.
Further, the handset will come packed with a 1500 mAh battery and also has a unique ‘Dual SIM Always on’ feature, which will offer users to receive calls on one SIM number while taking a call from the other, ensuring that the owners of the latest handset can manage both personal and work commitments without missing a call.
Moreover, Galaxy S Duos will also offer flexibility in selecting different billing plans for either SIM, switching between them at your convenience, said a report.
Galaxy S Duos pricing and availability has not been revealed by the company, however, tech experts are predicting the handset as a wallet friendly device to give a direct competition to the other Android budget savvy smartphones from HTC, LG and to some extent Nokia Asha series.
