Samsung takes dual sim to the mid-range with Galaxy Ace Duos

Samsung Galaxy Ace DUOS

Samsung Galaxy Ace DUOSSamsung has been building on the successes of previous products to determine if they will produce a version 2 of whichever phone it was. They did that with their first Galaxy, the Galaxy S which changed the way we look at Samsung today. They released the Galaxy S plus which had a battery life upgrade plus other minor details. We have seen the Samsung Star 3 Duos a feature phone which had a good level of success in sales of the Samsung Star previously.

Samsung Galaxy Young and Galaxy Young Pro also went Duos, but all these were entry level phones. It has never been above that. Well, till yesterday. Galaxy Ace is deemed a mid-range smartphone, specs-wise and price-wise. So with this you would assume Samsung is either seeing or predicting demand for the dual sim even for the mid-income earners.

Galaxy Ace Duos will support dual sim both active sims and has an even good software add-on. Users on a call will not miss a call if it came while they are on dial, but this will automatically be forwarded to SIM 2 and you can get your missed call from sim 2 call log. Let’s have a quick walkthrough of the phone specifications, shall we?
