It seems there may not be much left for LG to share with the world when they hold their LG G4 launch event next week in New York City. Just in the last day we have seen a leak about pricing for the smartphone and more information about the user interface to join all the previous information that has surfaced. Another tidbit of information that turned up thanks to a site in Iran is that a dual-sim version of the LG G4 exists. Coming from Iran, we think this variant will be available in that country and we would guess it will find its way to other markets where dual-sim devices are commonplace. Read more

Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S III Neo+ is now official in China

samsung_galaxy_s_III_neo+

Samsung has announced the Galaxy S III Neo+, a dual-SIM smartphone for China. We thought too that the next device announcement from the company would be the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. This device, however, is designed very similarly to the Galaxy S III from 2012. Behind its 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The display has 306 pixels per inch, 720p resolution.

Under the hood is either the Exynos 4 or Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM. While the architecture is unknown, we do know that it is a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. In usual Samsung fashion, the 8GB internal memory is joined by a microSD card slot. The dual-SIM feature supports 850/900/1900/2100 MHz WCDMA network bands and 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM.

P6 S

The Huawei P6 is a super-slim device with some serious horsepower, but its successor, the Ascend P6 S, promises to pack even more punch. Launched today with not much fanfare, the P6 S is a bit thicker (6.5 mm) but has the same battery capacity, 2,000mAh.

While it lacks LTE support, there is now a quad-core 1.6GHz processor. It’s also a dual-SIM, dual-standby phone. The remaining specs are the same as its predecessor— 4.7-inch LCD with 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP rear shooter, and a 5MP front camera.

Dual-SIM Moto G now available in Australia

Moto G Australia

A dual-SIM variant of the Moto G was always in future plans for the device, and now it seems as though that day is finally coming. At least in Australia, it is.

Motorola’s Australia site has the information on it already, so this news is definitely confirmed. Pricing is still unknown, as well as availability. Hopefully Motorola will make the dual-SIM Moto G available in the United States soon as well— for such a low price, it could do very well.

Galaxy Note III with dual-SIM launches in Asian markets, not region-locked

galaxy_note_3As previously rumored, Samsung has launched its dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 3— it’s only available in China, so don’t go crazy just yet.

The device features the Snapdragon 800 processor and actually doesn’t come with a region lock. Samsung hasn’t officially announced it, but GSMArena says it costs €735 (the single SIM model is around €700).

Although it’s only being sold in Asian markets for now, (and will most likely stay there) the absence of region locking is great— if you feel like having one shipped to you from the other side of the globe, go right ahead.
