Samsung finally announced their sets of Android Dual Sim phones late December last year and are scheduled to be officially released this first quarter of 2012, the Samsung GALAXY Y Duos and the Samsung GALAXY Y Pro Duos.
It’s interesting how the Android market booms and how it will enter the dual stand-by sim arena as another niche market involving professionals and yuppies alike who wants to have two phones in one plus all the convenience of a touch smartphone. The Galaxy Y Duos actually housed the Android 2.3 Gingerbread in a 832MHz processor powered 3.14” capacitive full touch screen display mobile phone. While the Galaxy Y Pro Duos has a full QWERTY keypad just below its 2.6” display.
Besides the difference that obviously stands out on its facade, the two Android dual sim smartphones have most features in common. Both have a single 3 Megapixel fixed-focus camera found at the back, an accelerometer, a digital compass, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, GPS, Bluetooth v3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, has a 512MB internal memory, 384MB of RAM, plus a 2GB microSD inside the box.
These Galaxy Y series are positioned on entry-level smartphones that would most probably have a mid-range price tag. A Galaxy Mini right now is under P9,000 from P10k plus when introduced. The Champ Duos is priced below P6k. The Galaxy Y Duos and the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos may play relatively along around P10k, though some believe while crossing their fingers for it to fall under P8,000. We’ll see when its out.
