Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fame duos back in February at Mobile World Congress, but the smartphone has yet to go on sale in India.However, Android enthusiasts in India won’t have to wait too long to be able to grab this affordable dual-SIM smartphone, as AndroidOS reports that Samsung plans to launch the devices in the country pretty soon.
Along with the Galaxy Fame duos, Samsung will also release another dual-SIM smartphone – the Galaxy Win duos, which was officially announced earlier this month. For the time being, both Android phones are available for purchase via Indian retailer Mahesh Telecom.
Those who wish to buy the Galaxy Fame duos will have to come up with Rs 10,999 ($200/€155) upfront.
The Galaxy Win duos is more expensive, as Android fans will have to pay no less than Rs 18,300 outright, which is about $335 or €255.
We expect that both dual-SIM smartphones will be available for purchase at multiple Indian retailers, as soon as Samsung officially introduces the devices in the country.
