Dual-SIM Galaxy S III (i939D) Spotted in China
The handset will run under Google’s Android 4.1.1 OS when launched
South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has already registered impressive success with its Galaxy S III smartphone, but appears set to grab even more market share with it, thus working on packing more features inside new models.The Galaxy S III i939D recently spotted in China is one such example, as the device is said to hit shelves with support for two SIM cards at the same time.
Featuring model number Samsung SCH-i939D, the device will provide support for GSM and CDMA SIM cards (one of each kind), while featuring the same appearance and specs as the original Galaxy S III.
Thus, those who choose to purchase the new mobile phone will be able to enjoy the same 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen display on its front, along with the quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 processor packed inside.
Furthermore, the dual-SIM flavor of Galaxy S III will include 1GB of RAM when launched in China, and will be powered by Google’s Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
On the back, the new smartphone model will pack an 8-megapixel photo snapper with flash and support for full HD video recording, complemented by a 1.9MP camera on the front, great for making video calls while on the go.
The new device is expected to become available for purchase in the local markets sometime in December, yet no specific info on its price tag has been provided as of yet.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Samsung has been also said to plan the release of a dual-SIM Galaxy Note II model in China in the not too distant future.
According to UnwiredView, there’s a chance that these handsets will never be launched in other markets around the world, yet Samsung has to confirm any specific plans on their availability.
