Samsung Galaxy Note II is coming to China with an extra SIM card slot
Guess which new smartphone is coming to China! No, it's not the ePhone 5, it's the renowned Galaxy Note II, but note that it will not be the same Note as we know it. No, this handset is going to be different, because of one unique feature - support for two SIM cards!

As much as you may like the idea of a dual-SIM device, this one will probably remain exclusive to China., where it's expected to launch on November 24 with China Telecom for about CNY 5,199 ($835).

Other than the two SIM card slots, the handset will be exactly the same as the international and U.S. Note II, sporting a speedy 1.6 GHz Exynos CPU, 2GB RAM, 8MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Because they restricted to one child. Now they can enjoy with two sim slots.

There are 3 companies in China, all with different technology and NON interchangable sim cards. Like if you switch between verizon and at&t, you need to switch numbers. But many people have 2 carriers because of deals and internet packages.

I've been waiting for this phone for months. 2 sim cards, for my 2 carriers. Ilive there.

Hell yeah. A great way to get more memory out of a device without getting screwed with ridiculous prices.

There are no carrier restrictions. So i can use one carrier which offers good call rates and the other for good data plan. SIMPLE
