First pictures of the dual-SIM Galaxy S6 Duo pop up

First pictures of the dual-SIM Galaxy S6 Duo pop up
Besides the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, Samsung also seems to have a third variation of its new flagship phone - the Galaxy S6 Duo. It popped up in the Philippines first, plus the variation of the Galaxy S6 with two nano SIM card slots inside was listed on a Russian electronics retailer website as well. 

We now have a more tangible proof that the dual SIM Galaxy S6 exists, as we were sent pictures of its mule, with the SIM cards tray popped out, which you can see in the slideshow below. Bear in mind that this is just a testing prototype, meaning that it is in a disguise shell, but with S6 internals.

Rolling under the same model number (SM-G920), the specs sheet of the phone is most probably indiscernible from the regular Galaxy S6, except for the two SIM slots, of course. It still comes with a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and a 16 MP rear-positioned shooter with an aperture of f/1.9.

As far as pricing is concerned, the dual-SIM Galaxy S6 rendition with 64GB of storage is commanding a RUB 52,990 price tag (~$901). There is no information whether it will be available in 32 and 128 GB versions. too. While nothing is official on whether the Galaxy S6 Duos will be available in select markets only, that will probably be the case, as usual.

Thanks for the tip, Toranji!

Surely someone would say "If that second sim slot was an SD card slot"

Ha ha... I wanted to say the same thing.

That would be really cool no? However, if SD card inserted to that second SIM slot ultimately behaves like an external storage, need to try this.

The second slot in Galaxy A series plays as either nanoSIM or microSD slot.

Can someone please explain to me why would consumers in other countries need need two slots?

I guess it is for those who don't want to carry 2 phones at once, having 2 networks because of mixed network friends, cross network texting/calling is very expensive in some countries

Users who travel extensively between China and Hong Kong, or any other two countries for example.

Aha. But can you insert a data sim (for internet) and a regular sim (for calling)?

to all that want to confirm this, yes this is already (well probably?) out here in the philippines. up to this point i have no news regarding pricing but its already been reviewed here by our local tech sites...there is still some issues with the phone regarding connectivity but everything else seems to be fine, to say the least. and also it will say duos at the back of the phone instead of the usual duos sign at the front.

just search the review on yugatech.com everything you need for the s6 duos will be there

What version do you recommend me to buy? G920FD or G9200?
I plan to use it in Europe and Latam.

Paper clip is alternative way to open it if you did not got the opener tool. But you must carefully probably you hurts other component inside it.

Some of people share the same to for verizon and sprint version and also not included with smart app manager.
