Samsung introduced a couple of new Android-running smartphones with support for two SIM slots each. The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos and Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos are entry-level offerings, designed to cater for the needs of emerging markets.
Both new Duos smartphones run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and come with 3 megapixel fixed-focus cameras. They share a very decent connectivity set, including 7.2Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and microUSB, plus FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is an all-touch smartphone with a 3.14″ QVGA (320×240 pixel resolution) screen. It comes with 512MB of internal memory that is expandable by up to 32GB through the microSD card slot and 384MB of RAM. There’s going to be a 2GB microSD card included in the retail package for the dual-SIM smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos sacrifices some screen area for a full QWERTY keyboard and comes with a 2.6″ QVGA LCD with landscape orientation. It has the same amount of storage and RAM as its keyboard-less sibling, but comes with a slightly larger battery (1350 mAh vs 1300 mAh).
There’s no information about the availability or pricing of either of the newly announced Duos smartphones, but we’ll do our best to keep you updated once it comes up.
