Samsung to Launch Dual SIM Version of Galaxy S II; Galaxy S II Duos

Samsung is ready to release a brand new dual sim version of the massively popular Galaxy S II, according to new reports.

The new avatar of the Android device is likely to be dubbed Galaxy S II Duos - not surprising, since almost all of the company's dual sim phones carry "Duos" behind their original name and model numbers.

The dual sim Galaxy S II will hit store shelves in China pretty soon; it will support both CDMA2000 and GSM networks. The device has been already assigned the model number - 1929, Samsung announced, as reported by CNET.

The Duos 1929 is likely to be pretty much an improvised version of Exynos, and it will be boast of a 4.52 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus Touchscreen, an eight megapixel camera, 1080p full HD recording ability, and 1.2 GHz dual core processor. In addition, there will be a front facing 2 megapixel camera for video calling purposes.

During the initial phase, the Duos 1929 will be powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, its not too tough to predict that Android Ice Cream Sandwich could be offered as an update down the road, - maybe during the first quarter of 2012, along with some other Samsung devices.
