Samsung has launched its Galaxy S Duos and Galaxy Y Duos Lite for the Indian market, with both handsets rebranded versions of the Galaxy S Duos S7562 and Galaxy Pocket Duos S5302, respectively.
Galaxy S Duos
The Galaxy S Duos is the South Korean phone maker’s most efficient dual-SIM Android to date.
The dual-SIM feature supports 3G HSPA speeds on both SIM cards, but prohibits simultaneous data connections.
The Galaxy S Duos also has Smart Dual SIM, which allows users to make or receive calls from either SIM card while the other remains active on standby mode.
Running on a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A5 single-core processor and Adreno 200 graphics, the dual-SIM version of the original Galaxy S comes with a 4in WVGA TFT touchscreen, a 5MP camera with VGA video recording, 768MB of RAM, 4GB storage, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and standard connectivity options.
Samsung Galaxy S Duos will cost Rs. 17900 (around US$320) in India.
Galaxy Y Duos Lite (Galaxy Pocket Duos)
The Galaxy Y Duos Lite is a rebranded Galaxy Pocket Duos for the Indian market.
However, it is a stripped-down version of the original for its 2.8-inch QVGA (320×240 pixels) touchscreen, 832MHz single-core processor, 2MP rear-facing camera, and 3GB built-in storage.
Unlike the Galaxy S Duos, the Galaxy Y Duos Lite offers 3G support only on the primary SIM card.
The handset uses a relatively outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, but also features Smart Dual SIM.
The Galaxy Y Duos will cost Rs. 6990 (around $125) in India.
