Buoyed by the success of dual-SIM smartphones in countries like India and China, South Korea's largest handset manufacturer Samsung has announced a triple-SIM phone in Brazil.
The Samsung Galaxy Star Trios is a brand new entry-level Android phone in Brazil, South America's fastest growing handset market.
The low-end phone is now available via authorized multiple retail sellers, news.softpedia notes
The Galaxy Star Trios, as the name suggests, is a unique handset considering it can handle three SIM cards. The phone can be purchased for $165 in the Brazilian market.
The biggest highlight of Galaxy Star Trios is the fact that it supports triple-SIM, surely, a rare feature to find.
Beyond its ability to handle three SIM cards, there's nothing much to say about the hardware.
The phone comes with a 3.14-inch low resolution display (240 x 320), which shows that it is primarily made for first time smartphone users.
The entry-level handset features a 1GHz single-core processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 SoC, backed by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card slot.
The device also incorporates a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1300mAh battery fitted inside.
For a reminder, another smartphone maker, LG, last week launched its first ever triple SIM phone in Brazil. The LG Optimus L1 II Tri, a 3-inch triple-SIM smartphone features more-or-less similar specs, when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios.
We don't know whether Samsung would ever release the Galaxy Star Trios, outside of Brazil.
