Samsung launches Galaxy S Duos and Galaxy Y Duos Lite
Galaxy S Duos
The Galaxy S Duos is Samsung’s best dual-SIM droid up to date. It runs on a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A5 processor with Adreno 200 graphics, and packs a 4-inch WVGA TFT touchscreen, 5MP camera with VGA video recording, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage and the usual connectivity options.
The Galaxy S Duos supports 3G with HSPA on both SIM cards, but you can’t have two data connections simultaneously.
The handset also features Smart Dual SIM function which allows you to take calls from one of the SIM cards while the other is active as well. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is in charge of the Galaxy S Duos.
Unfortunately, the dual-SIM handset doesn't come with the SuperAMOLED screen of its original and has a regular LCD screen instead.
Samsung Galaxy S Duos will hit India soon at Rs. 17900 or €256. We guess the European price should be about the same. Price-wise, it's about the same price segment as the HTC Desire V, its direct competitor.
Galaxy Y Duos Lite (Galaxy Pocket Duos)
The Galaxy Y Duos Lite is the Indian version of the Galaxy Pocket Duos. It is a less capable fella with a 2.8-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, an 832MHz processor, a 2MP snapper, 3GB internal storage and 3G support only on the primary SIM card. The Android OS ticking inside is 2.3 Gingerbread, but it also supports the Smart Dual SIM function we mentioned above.
The Galaxy Y Duos price is just Rs. 6990 or €100.

I don't know why almost everybody is telling that the battery back up is very poor. I am using it for 7 months and without a single glitch. U must consider the processor power and never stash it with unnecessary apps...never App Killer...it might kil...
