dual SIM galaxy note 3

A dual SIM model of Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 is now available for purchase in China and expected to go on sale in much of the Asian region where two SIM slots are more commonly used than in the U.S. and Europe. Vietnamese website Zing News got its hands on one of the new models, which costs slightly more than the original model.

This version of the Galaxy Note 3 isn't region locked—unlike models spotted in parts of Europe and Latin America—so even though the dual SIM device will likely be restricted to the Asian market there's nothing stopping you from having one shipped across the world and popping in a couple of your own SIM cards.

Besides its additional SIM card slot, this version of the Galaxy Note 3 offers the same design and specs as other models, including a 5.68-inch Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel secondary shooter, a 3200mAh battery, NFC,  a redesigned S Pen stylus and runs Android 4.3 with Samsung's own TouchWiz UI on top.
