Samsung brings dual-SIM smartphones to India

Samsung has launched three new "Duos"-branded smartphones in India, offering dual connectivity to Indian consumers. The Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos will look familiar to anyone who's glanced across Samsung's European line-up, but the Duos variants come with dual-SIM support. Similarly, the Galaxy Ace has been available for around a year, but the Ace Duos includes both GSM and CDMA connectivity.

Dual SIM devices are popular in developing countries, where many phone users operate multiple pre-paid SIMs on different networks, allowing them to take advantage of both networks' coverage areas. However, traditionally users would have to make do with a basic featurephone if they wanted two SIMs in the same device.

The Galaxy Y Duos, Galaxy Y Duos Pro and Galaxy Ace Duos are due to go on sale in India in the coming days. All three devices run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung's TouchWiz 4 UI.
