Samsung today announced a pair of dual-SIM Android handsets for Russia, Europe, and additional markets. Expected to launch in January, the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos, offer support for two SIM cards, run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and work on GSM bands(850/900/1800/1900 MHz).
The smaller of the two models, the Galaxy Y Duos is an touch-only device with a 3.14-inch QVGA screen, a 3-megapixel fixed-focus camera, and a 1,300mAh battery. Additionally, there is an 832MHz processor powering things inside the 11.98mm thick polished metallic casing.
Turning to the Galaxy Y Pro Duos, we get a larger physical design but with a smaller 2.6-inch display and portrait QWERTY keyboard. Like its counterpart, there is a 3-megapixel camera on the back, however there’s also a front-facing VGA camera, and slightly larger 1,350 mAh battery. Keeping in line with other “Pro” models, this guy also offers consumers a host of business-related applications and services.
Although we don’t have any pricing or specific carrier details at this point, we can expect to see both models come to Russia, Europe, Africa, CIS, Latin America, parts of Asia, and other markets. Perhaps Samsung will bring these along for the ride next month at CES where we can get some hands-on time.
