Think of dual-SIM phones, and what usually comes to mind are the budget and mid-range options that are available in India, by the dozen. However, if the China launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note II is anything to go by, that perception and part reality might soon change for the better.
We had recently heard that the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Note II would be available to China Telecom subscribers this weekend. And that information has turned out to be true, with the phone now showing up on Samsung China’s website.
The dual-SIM capability comes from one full size SIM slot and one micro SIM slot. The rest of the specs include a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD screen. The Android version on this phone is the same as the HSPA version of the Galaxy Note II that we had reviewed, bringing with it all the goodness like Air View, the S-Pen features, multi-screen tasking and Smart Stay.
The price of the Note II dual-SIM in China would be around ¥ 5700 – translating to a rather unrealistic Rs. 51,000, we expect it to be priced a fair bit lower than that.
It would be interesting to see if the Galaxy Note II dual-SIM comes to India. Being a market where dual-SIM (and dual-SIM Android) phones are very popular, this would be a very good option for those who are looking for a very powerful phone, but still need to carry two different phones.
