You're probably tired of hearing about Samsung releasing yet another mid to low range device, but here we are again. This time it's the Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 that's aiming for the spotlight in the Indian market, carrying a relatively low price for a dual SIM option.
Not much is known about this device but, if the name is any indication, it is simply a follow up to last year's Galaxy S Duos. That one came with a 4-inch WVGA screen with a 480x800 pixel resolution, a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 1500 mAh battery, and 4 GB of internal memory. The device was powered by a 1 GHz single-core processor and 768 MB of RAM. Not particularly stellar but has just enough juice to get by. Naturally, the selling feature is the dual SIM support.
Based on what little information we have, it almost feels like a deja vu. The Galaxy S Duos 2 practically sports most of the specs of its predecessor, including the 4-inch WVGA screen, the 5 megapixel rear camera, and the 1500 mAh battery. The processor has been reportedly upgraded to a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip. Quite amusingly, earlier leaks pointed to 6 GB of memory. In truth, it only has 768 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. Android 4.2 is installed on this smartphone, which is, at least, a little recent.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 has a recommended retail price of Rs. 10,999, or around $180. That might not be that bad for a low-cost smartphone in a market where dual SIM choices from major international brands are not that many.
