The Korean mobile industry launched a new smartphone called Samsung Galaxy S DUOS with dual-SIM capabilities. This is yet another Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone and so far the youngest sibling of the Galaxy mobile family. The GALAXY family seems to be getting bigger on each season. The new Samsung GALAXY S DUOS dual-SIM capabilities will be available in the Europe first starting this coming September and will roll-out globally afterwards. I am also wouldn’t be surprised if this new GALAXY S DUOS will be included in the upcoming SAMSUNG Mobile UNPACKED this coming 29th of August in Berlin.

Benefits Of Having A Dual-SIM Smartphone
With a busy life of most professionals, it is important that we can separate our personal life and time with our professional lives. I personally don’t want to mix my work-related messages, emails, calls and notes with my friends and family messages. So with Samsung GALAXY S DUOS having a “Dual SIM Always on” feature will allow me to receive any calls or messages from one SIM from a different provider and the same thing on the other SIM from another different network provider. This can become pretty much convenient for active users like me.
I was personally hoping that it will come out with the new Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update. However, I think this is not impossible in the future. I will update this once we get more details about the new Samsung GALAXY S DUOS once it’s officially out. For more details about this new Samsung dual-SIM smartphone, check out their press release.
