Samsung lifts the cover off its first dual-SIM smartphones: Galaxy Y Androids on budget
Samsung has officially unveiled its two latest offerings in the Galaxy Y lineup and they both feature dual-SIM support and run on Android. This is a pretty neat combination especially given the affordable pricing of Samsung’s Y series.

The first new addition, the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is basically a slightly reworked Galaxy Y. It features a slightly larger, 3.14-inch display with QVGA resolution (243 x 320 pixels). Under the hood, this little dual-SIM smartphone comes with some pretty capable silicon - an 832MHz processor runs the TouchWiz-infused Gingerbread show. 

On the back of the Galaxy Y Duos there’s a 3-megapixel camera. The handset supports 3G connectivity with HSDPA and there’s a microSD card slot accepting cards of up to 32GB.


The second handset, the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos, builds on the full-QWERTY Galaxy Y Pro. It has a smaller, 2.6-inch display with WQVGA resolution (400 x 240 pixels). The rest of the stuffing on the Galaxy Y Pro Duos is similar to the Y Duos, so the main differentiator remains the keyboard.


The two handsets will make their official store debuts in January next year in Europe, Russia, Latin America, Asia, Africa and China.

Samsung Galaxy Y Pro DUOS has a front-facing camera, while the original Y Pro doesn't have one. does it mean that the Y Pro DUOS finally supports video call?

"The two handsets will make their official store debuts in January next year in Europe, Russia, Latin America, Asia, Africa and China." In my country, we already have the Samsung Pro Duos but not the Duos.. wierd..
