Samsung Korea has just announced two new additions to its smartphone line-up, and these are the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos. Obviously, you’re interested to know why both smartphones have “duos” in their name, right? Well, the term somehow give aways what these two smartphones have in common and that is the fact that both happen to have two SIM card slots. In case you’re not aware, dual-SIM phones are pretty big in emerging countries. And I’m pretty sure, such smartphone will also be very useful for those in the advanced countries such as the US.
Anyway, aside from having two SIM card slots, the Galaxy Y Duos also features Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an 832MHz processor and a 3MP camera. The Galaxy Y Pro Duo on the other hand has the same OS and processor clock speed but also features a 2.6-inch display and full QWERTY keyboard.
The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos will be available in Russia first. The Galaxy Y Duos is also scheduled to be released in Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and China. While the Galaxy Y Pro Duos will be released in Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southwest Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Unfortunately, no exact date has been announced yet for the two smartphones release.
