Samsung has unveiled the latest addition to its Galaxy family this morning in the form of the Galaxy S Duos, an Android-powered smartphone aimed at “active young professionals” that offers support for two SIM cards simultaneously. The device looks a lot like Samsung’s latest flagship handset — the Galaxy S III — but isn’t quite as similar internally.
The Galaxy S Duos is powered by a 1GHz processor and offers 4GB of internal storage. It sports a 4-inch 480 x 800 TFT display and a 1,500 mAh battery, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Its special feature is that it doesn’t just have two SIM slots, but can utilize them both simultaneously. That means you can receive calls and texts to two different numbers without having to switch between them manually.
It’s this that makes the Galaxy S Duos perfect for juggling personal and professional life, according to Samsung. You can field calls from the office and keep in touch with friends and family without having to carry two devices — or even worse, continually swap two SIM cards in and out of one device.
The Galaxy S Duos is slated to hit Europe in September, and Samsung’s promising a rollout “across other territories” later on.
