Samsung seems to be on a roll these days – busy launching successors to a bunch of mid-range handsets it released last year. They started off with the Galaxy Grand 2 and a little over a week later have come up with the Galaxy S Duos 2 now.
Let’s quickly delve and find out what has changed with the new, mid-range dual SIM offering from the company. The new Galaxy S Duos 2 gets a 4-inch WVGA display – which is not really an improvement over the outgoing model. In fact, most other physical aspects of the handsets remain the same. Same is the case with the camera which happens to be a 5 megapixel shooter. The major change is with the processor which is now a 1.2 Ghz Dual Core chip as opposed to a 1 Ghz, single core A5 chipset used by the older model. We are at this point not sure which exact chipset is being used by the Galaxy S Duos 2. Internal memory remains at 4 GB (1.8 GB user available) with 768 MB of RAM.
The Galaxy S Duos 2 will run Android 4.2 JellyBean at launch and it might not be too much to expect a climb to KitKat in the not too distant future. According to the Samsung presser, they have made improvements to the UI on the device with “enhanced graphics, better organized layout”.
The connectivity side is taken care of by Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS/AGPS and 3g. The phone is powered by a 1500mAh that claims an eight hour talk time. The phone will also support a bunch of local languages – a feature that Samsung has been promoting a lot these days.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 has been priced at Rs.10,990/- and will be made available in available in 2 colors.
