Samsung Galaxy S Duos becomes official


GALAXY S DuosA dual-sim version of a high-end phone from Samsung has been forthcoming, where in the high-end was what I wasn’t sure of. Sometime early this month I got wind of some rumour about the Galaxy S Duos image being spotted in the wild. It wasnt going to take long, it’s now official. Now, this is not a device to take long to go into the shelves, as Samsung has been on the Dual sim phones production for quite long, even having great success with the Ch@t feature phones, dual sim Android phones the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro DUos which were in demand for quite some time.

Samsung also released the Galaxy Chat, which was a dual sim Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich smartphone whose production target was to provide an option for the Galaxy Y Pro Duos user who wanted some more screen real estate while still having the qwerty keyboard. That did quite well in striking the balance. Now for anyone who still wanted to go up the ladder while still on dual sim phone, enters the Galaxy S Duos, a smart phone running Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich, running a 1GHz processor, a 4 inch screen with 480×800 WVGA, HSDPA speeds of upto 7.2MBps, 1500mAh Li-ion battery, 4GB internal memory with the (now usual)microSD support of upto 32GB and both front and rear camera, the former being VGA and the latter being a 5MP autofocus with LED flash, Bluetooth 3.0, dimensions being 63.1 x 121.5 x 10.5mm all on 120 grams weight.

With always-on dual sim functionality like experienced on the Galaxy Y Duos twins, the Galaxy S Duos brings those features on the Galaxy S Plus and adds dual sim capability. Physically it has a design almost like the much famed Galaxy S III and the launch phone is white, marble white according to the press images available, no mention of other colours, although it’s expected the black version will naturally be available when it goes to the shelves starting in September. The phone is said to be targeted at working young professionals, are you one?


  1. MY ANSWER: Resounding No..With the the battery capped at 1500mAH and running on ICS thats a turn off for me.Just for that..The other specs looks quite ok,samsung sIII bezel is quite human as they say,the white colour is attention seeking for me though pricing may be another thing altogether..It may go well past 30k as my guess.However we will see..

    • I also felt the 4″ screen and the dual sim, dual standby would wear out the 1500mAh battery fast, but also taking it up would impact on the price.
      Now on the same line, you notice the back has a protrusion, that would mean a user replacing it with a more powerful battery would not mean a bulge, just like with the Galaxy S II
