Samsung Unveils the Samsung S Duos
Samsung has enough experience of making a low- or mid-range device that looks a lot like a flagship model and so far, this seems to be a working strategy. The Galaxy S was the first of three very successful Galaxy S models and Samsung made a lot of money selling cheaper phones that borrowed some design features. The Samsung Galaxy Ace is a good example of smartphone with low price, less advanced specs and some components of Galaxy S’ design. It has now been superseded by the Galaxy W, which drew some elements of the Galaxy S2.
Samsung also quickly implemented one feature that seems to gain much success in Asian countries: The dual-SIM capability. As a part of this effort, the company has previously launched the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Ace Duos, which seemed to appeal many consumers.
With 4” WVGA display and 1GHz Cortez-A5 processor, Samsung Galaxy S is now considered a mid-range device, which saves Samsung from spending money on developing a new model. Unlike the original, the Galaxy S Duos will feature Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Other features are 5Mp rear-facing camera, Adreno 200 GPU, 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.
