Dual-SIM Galaxy S3 Duos now official in China with CDMA and GSM support

The dual-SIM Galaxy S3 Duos has been made official in China, although the device is not available for purchase yet.
February 23, 2013

A few months ago we showed you a picture of the leaked dual-SIM Galaxy S3 Duos, not a surprising Galaxy S3 version considering that Samsung has made plenty of other dual-SIM Android handsets this year, and now the device has been launched in China.

The Galaxy S3 Duos – model number SCH-I939D – will offer support for CDMA and GSM networks, but otherwise will be virtually similar to regular Galaxy S3 versions. A slightly bigger battery is also included, and by slightly we mean that you can expect only a 30mAh bump in power.

The Galaxy S3 Duos does run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box, in case that’s a concern, but it’s not clear whether it will hit other markets as well or whether it’s a China-only smartphone – not that there are many CDMA carriers out there that could use the device. Pricing and availability dates for China aren’t public yet either, but considering that the handset has been confirmed, it’ll only be a matter of time until it hits stores.

Expect the Galaxy S3 Duos to arrive in two color options, Marble White or Pebble Blue, but only in one storage option, 16GB. Are you buying one?
