Samsung unveils Galaxy Trend II and Galaxy Trend II DUOS in China

Samsung has announced two new handsets, this time for the Chinese market, the Galaxy Trend II (SCH-I739MSACTC) and the Trend II DUOS (GT-S7572RWACHN).

This confirms the fact that Samsung is opting for a two-prong approach with single and dual SIM slot smartphones being brought to market at the same time.

Both handsets appear to be standard mid-range smartphones, with a rather old fashion design with no Nature UX in sight, and it is not known whether they will go on sale outside mainland China.

They both share some common features with the original Galaxy S and the Galaxy S2. They are powered by a dual-core SoC, possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon model, with a 4in 800 x 480 pixel display, a disappointing 3-megapixel camera without flash, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD card slot, a 1,500mAh battery, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage and a dedicated physical home button.

Samsung unveiled a slew of mainstream smartphones over the past couple of weeks.

The Galaxy Star, the Galaxy Pocket Neo, the Galaxy Win were launched over the last two days and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, the smaller version of the S4 (which debuted mid-march) is set to appear soon.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
