Archos has announced their new lineup of devices for the European market today, with four new Platinum phones. The lineup features HSPA+ and dual SIM support across the lineup, as well as a MT 6752 1.3GHZ dual-core processor.
Earlier rumors were suggesting LG was just about ready to announce the G Pro Lite. And well, aside from not having the 'dual' branding in the name, it looks like the rumors were fairly accurate. The LG G Pro Lite will arrive sporting a 5.5-inch IPS (960 x 540) display, 3140 mAh battery and a feature that we suspect some will either love or hate -- a stylus pen.
Building on the success of its Galaxy S4, Samsung has just taken off the covers of a new smartphone targeted at the Chinese market. Although the Galaxy Trend 3 sports the same sleek look as the company's latest flagship, it packs in hardware that just screams budget price.
Samsung has a history of releasing multiple variants of smartphones and it looks like that is a tradition that will continue. A recent leak is detailing a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3. This leak came along with an image and some specs which basically tell the story of a handset that is the same with one exception -- that extra SIM card slot.
It wasn't all that long back when we got the first official look at the HTC Butterfly S, however as of today it is looking like there is a dual-SIM model that has yet to be announced by HTC. Details of this handset recently appeared on Twitter coming by way of the @leakschina account which is showing the handset from all sides.
Samsung appears to be prepping another Galaxy branded smartphone. The latest is the GT-I8552, which has also been dubbed the Galaxy Win. This one will be another with dual-SIM card support and the leak is coming by way of Vietnam. Specifically, the Galaxy Win has been spotted on the Vietnamese language MaiNguyen site.
We have seen details on the Xperia E Dual for the UK and Germany, however as of today we have word of availability for the US market. In short, Sony has begun accepting pre-orders for the handset. The device is available unlocked and contract free and assuming the estimated shipping date holds true -- it will begin shipping sooner rather than later.
The teams at Samsung have already announced their somewhat uninspiring mid-range Galaxy Grand smartphone, but today they detailed a few new markets. Today Samsung announced the Galaxy Grand Duos will be launching for those in India, complete with dual-SIM options and Jelly Bean. More info on this little handset can be had below.
Kogan has confirmed the upcoming release of the Agora smartphone. The handset is launching with a 5-inch display and perhaps key for some -- as a dual-SIM device. The handset will begin shipping next month where it will be available for a total of eleven countries and with a relatively low price point.
Typically, a smartphone that suports dual SIM cards without a contract from a carrier is quite expensive. Usually, the price for such phones is in the hundreds. However, the new Blu Dash 3.5 breaks the trend and comes in at just under one hundred dollars, which is quite impressive for a fully unlocked Android smartphone.
