Samsung introducing two dual-Sim card Android phone worldwide except in North America

Samsung introduced two new Android phones this week, the Samsung GALAXY Y DUOS and the Samsung GALAXY Y Pro DUOS. What’s so special about these phones? Well they’re both dual Sim phones to be released starting January 2012 in Russia. “The GALAXY Y DUOS will be gradually rolled out to Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southeast and Southwest Asia, Middle East, Africa and China. GALAXY Y Pro DUOS will be coming to Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southwest Asia, Middle East and Africa.
What about North America? Not anytime soon, not sure why manufacturers always disregard North America when it comes to dual-Sim card phones. Probably due to phones being locked to carriers.

These dual Sim card phones will make it easier for frequent travelers and users who want to separate business with their personal life. No need to carry two phones now.


The Samsung GALAXY Y DUOS is a touchscreen phone offering a 3.14-inch display and is powered by an 832MHz processor running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The Samsung GALAXY Y Pro DUOS is a QWERTY smartphone with a 2.6-inch display running on Android OS.

With these two phones, Samsung is joining other manufacturers such as Philips, Viewsonic and Spice in the dual-Sim card market. I just wish these phones will one day make it to North America.
