Samsung has just announced the availability of the new Galaxy Ace Duos, a new dual-sim phone which is said to have the ability to forward a call received on one SIM to the other SIM via the feature called “Dual SIM always on.” For those who have been following Samsung’s releases, you may recall that the Galaxy Ace Duos had been launched sometime in February. Back then, Samsung said Galaxy Ace Duos was supposed to be a dual-SIM phone too. Truth be told, it doesn’t really have a Dual-SIM capability. The phone runs on both GSM and CDMA built-in connectivity.
But as mentioned in the title, this time around the newly announced Galaxy Ace Duos is indeed a dual-sim phone supporting GSM+GSM and 7.2Mbps HSDPA. Under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos, nothing really spectacular can be found. It has a 3.5-inch 320-x480 touchscreen, 832MHz processor, 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM, 3GB of internal storage plus microSD card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1300 mAh battery. The device runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with no official word yet on an ICS update. I doubt it will happen, since the device may not meet the power requirements of Android 4.
And now for the most important information of all. The Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos will be initially released in Russia this June. Samsung plans to gradually roll it out in other areas stretching from Europe to SE Asia.
