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.
