Samsung to offer Chinese market dual-SIM version of GALAXY Note II
Dual-SIM card phones are becoming quite popular overseas. So in China, Samsung decided to take the sequel unit to its phablet, the 5.5 inch Samsung GALAXY Note II, and add support for dual-SIM cards. A picture of the back of the device with its back cover removed shows three slots, one for microSD cards, one for a regular-sized SIM card and one for a micro SIM card. Outside of the extra SIM slot, the device is a perfect twin for the version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II that was introduced during the Samsung Unpacked event late last month in Berlin.

The dual-SIM card phablet is said to be coming to China Unicom, although pricing and release date are not yet known. In fact, as of now, the dual SIM card model has just the one destination to visit. But what a destination it is! China has become the number one smartphone market in the world, so it is with good reason that Samsung bends over backward to offer a crowd pleasing model like the 5.5 inch GALAXY Note II with the one feature designed for the local market.

The Samsung GALAXY Note II is equipped with that 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of  720 x 1280 and a pixel density of 267ppi. A quad-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 4412 processor is under the hood with 2GB of RAM on board. The rear-facing 8MP camera captures video in 1080p at 30fps, while the 1.9MP front facing camera is perfectly content to handle self-portraits and video chat. A huge 3100mAh battery keeps the lights on at night and Android 4.1 is installed out of the box. And don't forget the dual-SIM card slots just for the Chinese market for now. There really is no reason why other countries where dual-SIM card phones are all the rage, can't receive a variant of this model.
