Samsung India today launched two new Android smartphones, adding them to the Galaxy line. Both come with dual-SIM dual-Standby support, and if you use two phones, you could look into these. One thing to note though – they both support GSM+GSM, so if you have a CDMA connection, you might want to be careful.
The Galaxy S Duos, announced last month, comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a single core 1 GHz processor. There’s a 5 MP camera on the back, and this time, with an LED flash, which can record 720p videos. There’s a 4.0″ WVGA resolution display. On the front, there’s a VGA camera for video calls.
On the memory front, there’s 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal memory, expandable upto 32 GB with a microSD card. There’s the usual Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS. A 1500 mAh battery powers the Galaxy S Duos.
The Galaxy Y Duos Lite comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (yes, I read the release again!), and a 2.8″ display of 240×320 resolution. There’s a 2 MP camera on the back, but no Flash or front facing camera. No word on the RAM, but there’s an 832 MHz processor, and 3 GB internal memory, expandable upto 32 GB with a microSD card. It comes with a 1200 mAh battery. As a freebie, Reliance customers will get 1 GB of 3G data each month, for 6 months. After 1 GB of 3G data, you can still use data on 2G, unlimited.
The Galaxy S Duos does look good, but it’s not the best bang for your buck. It’s priced at Rs. 17900, whereas the Galaxy Y Duos Lite has been priced at Rs. 6990.
