Earlier today, HTC launched the dual-SIM variant of its latest mid-range smartphone, the Desire 826, in India. The device is now available to pre-order in both black and white coloways for Rs. 26,900 ($420) and will start shipping on Monday, June 29.
HTC has announced a new mid-range, dual-SIM phone for the Taiwanese market. The new device joins the Desire lineup and will be called the Desire 820G+.
The 820G+ features Android 4.4 and a 5.5-inch display that has a surprisingly nice 720p HD resolution. You’ll also find a 13 megapixel rear camera, an 8 megapixel front cam, an octa-core CPU with 1 GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot. Read more
The G4 is LG’s latest flagship smartphone, so it should come as no real surprise that a dual-SIM version of the handset, the G4 Dual, has been launched in India. It’s available in Black and Brown leather finish variants, with the Red version expected to become available soon.
It was just the other day that Valerie wrote about the possibility of Sony’s Xperia M4 Aqua smartphone being launched in India this week, and now it’s confirmed. The Xperia M4 Aqua will support Dual-SIMs and is priced at Rs. 24,990 ($390).
The Indian smartphone market is fiercely contested, nowhere more so than the entry-level segment which sees a new entrant from Intex called the Cloud M5 II carrying a price tag of Rs. 4,799 ($75). The Cloud M5 II is available exclusively from the Indian retailer, Flipkart.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge have been creating waves across the world ever since its launch roughly a month ago. And now, it seems like Samsung wants to launch region specific variants of the popular flagship to make it more attractive to the locals.
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
Last year, Sony had a limited release of a dual-SIM variant to their flagship Xperia Z3 and it appears from these leaked screenshots that they may do this again with the Xperia Z4.
A few of the screenshots show the settings menu of a Sony device running with specs that are consistent with the rumors for the Xperia Z4 and also shows there is a category called “Dual SIM settings”. Additionally, you can see what Lollipop is going to look like on this smartphone. Read more
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.
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.
