Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a cheap, dual-SIM Galaxy S III look alike

Samsung Galaxy S Duos is a cheap, dual-SIM Galaxy S III look alike
So far, Samsung’s Galaxy Duos lineup of dual-SIM devices has been a pretty popular choice in developing markets where people want to have two SIM cards and connections to two operators at the same time for better signal and economy, but the choice of devices was limited largely to older models.

For the first time, it seems that Samsung is bringing its hottest device to the dual-SIM worls - the Samsung Galaxy S Duos leaked out in India, and chances are we can see it in a few Asian countries and maybe some other markets, but hardly the US.

The Galaxy S Duos looks just like the Samsung Galaxy S III, but - of course - it has far less capable internal parts. For starters, the screen will be smaller, at 4 inches rather than 4.8” and with a resolution of 480x800 pixels. The phone will luckily run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but not much is known about the processor. It will have 512MB of RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage, though.

The focus as you have probably guessed by now is the appearance. We don’t know whether launching such a device would be a good idea - Samsung would definitely take some of the appeal of the Samsung Galaxy S III if millions of look-alike cheapo phones start to appear. And that’s what makes us doubt this whole rumor. But if it does, some users might be happy. What about you, are you one of them?

one sim slot for everyday phone calls and sms. another is for unlimited data plan services. i've told sony ericsson the reason for making dual sim phone especially for asian - indonesian, but they ignore it. as we in indonesia doesn't have to unlock carrier provider. we are here free of choice to buy phone what we want and uses carrier services the one we like or you just can change your number anytime you like. and dual sim for my purpose is to use one slot as regular phone functions such as calls and sms and the other one is for monthly data plan services. and now, dual sims become debatable but for me it is a must so no need to spent more for usb modem as i can use my dual sims phone to handle both.

Why couldn't they make, or do that with the S3, and charge the public an extra £50 or £100....

So this is supposed to have ICS and TouchWiz with only 512MB RAM? If they can get this going without much troubles, then I don't see why the original Galaxy S devices don't get ICS.
