Samsung to release Galaxy Note 2 with dual-SIM support in China?

by: Bams SadewoSeptember 7, 2012

Chinese manufacturers are trying hard to move away from their knock-off maker reputation. Meanwhile, those outside the country are busy implementing features that most phones in China wouldn’t be caught dead without, like dual-SIM card support. We’ve seen Samsung releasing many dual-SIM phones before, but the next one, if accurate, should take the cake as the most high-profile device to ship with one.

It appears Samsung is readying a special version of the recently announced Galaxy Note 2 for the Chinese market. The next-generation phablet that will be offered there will come with not one, but TWO slots to place your SIM card(s) in. There’s one slot for a micro SIM, and the other one for a normal-sized card. Since you’re probably going to go all “pics or it didn’t happen” on us, here’s a pictorial evidence of the multi-SIM Galaxy Note 2 for you to gawk at.


The other specs of the Galaxy Note 2 (dual-SIM remix) should remain the same: 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front-facing camera, and Jelly Bean.

We know that April is still months away for this one to be a complete hoax, but we’re still going to tread carefully on this purported dual-SIM, dual-standby Samsung Galaxy Note 2, at least until we get some confirmation straight from the horse’s mouth.

What do you think of this version of the Galaxy Note 2 and its supposed dual-SIM capability? Does this look legit? Do you see the benefits of having two numbers on your phone-cum-tablet?

  • I do love it!

    Why not for the US? Seems logical to me!

    It just seems to get better and better with the Note 2. For some, this is another reason to get it. Technology built for the people, to make people’s life easier and better. Something that the Nokia of old prior to the covert take over by Elop and Microsft used to do. Never mind. The spirit lives on. in Sansung. Thats’s what matters most. ;)

    Interesting the way Samsung is moving. For Italy the Dual-SIM is a must.
