Samsung Galaxy Y Duos Lite S5302 Specs Revealed

Despite the recent loss against Apple, life still continues for Samsung and the fact is that it is preparing to launch yet another budget-friendly device dubbed as Samsung Galaxy Y Duos Lite with model number S5302. It is apparently the cheaper version of Galaxy Y Duos, an entry-level and budget-friendly Android smartphone announced in December 2011 and released in February this year.

The Galaxy Y Duos Lite is just one of the many devices the South Korean manufacturer plans on releasing in the upcoming months. Just recently during the IFA 2012 event in Berlin, it officially launched the second generation of its smartphone-tablet hybrid, Galaxy Note. Samsung Galaxy Note II will feature a thinner and slightly bigger 5.5-inch screen and quad-core processor.

Clearly, Samsung is not only trying to capture the high-end market but also the entry-level market. In fact, Galaxy Y Duos Lite will complete the lineup of Duos devices which are planned to be released this year following the announcement of Galaxy S Duos that will be made available in Europe this month.

To explain why it is called Galaxy Y Duos Lite, here are the initial specs:

  • 2.8 inches LCD capacitive multitouch display
  • 832 MHz single-core processor
  • Dual Active SIM
  • 2MP primary camera
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • MicroUSB, Bluetooth
  • 2GB internal memory
  • MicroSD card slot supporting up to 32GB external memory
  • 1200 mAh battery pack

Basically, with the display not reaching 3 inches in size, we can assume it would be smaller than any other Samsung smartphones ever released before. But small as it is, the 832 MHz processor is impressive; it offers the same power and performance as with the original Galaxy Y only that it is much smaller and hopefully cheaper.

Samsung should offer this handset cheaper than any entry-level devices to get noticed. Otherwise, it would become just a waste of effort and resources considering Android smartphone buyers these days are going for bigger and much powerful devices on the high-end level.

The pricing and availability of Galaxy Y Duos Lite haven’t been disclosed yet.

Galaxy S Duos is an entry-level dual-SIM phone wrapped in an S3-like chassis

Android Central

Popular in developing countries, dual-SIM phones allow users to use multiple pre-paid networks on a single handsets, which can be useful where coverage on each individual network can be spotty or unreliable. Over the past six months, Samsung has released a few of these handsets in Indian and other countries, notably the Galaxy Ace Duos and Galaxy Y Duos. Now it's bringing a brand new design and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the table in its latest dual-SIM phone, the Galaxy S Duos.

Specification lists and official renders for the Galaxy S Duos have emerged from a variety of sources around the web, showing a Galaxy S3-like exterior with ICS and the latest version of the TouchWiz Nature UX. On the inside, things are a little less mind-blowing, with a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and a 5MP rear camera. Nevertheless, it's sufficient for basic smartphone tasks, and that's what you'd expect form such a device. The big deal here is the premium design and the inclusion of ICS, a rarity in this kind of handset.

Details of pricing and availability have yet to emerge, but we'll keep you posted with any further info, but bear in mind any release outside of India and Central Asia is fairly unlikely.

Samsung does some awesome face projection to push Galaxy Y Duos (video)

Image

So, imagine that you’re Samsung, and you’re looking to promote your double-SIMed Galaxy Y Duos smartphone. How to go about it? How about performing a cool light show on some dude’s face? That’s the approach of this spot brought to you by the Portugal wing of the hardware maker. The model in question reportedly had to sit still for “up to” three hours straight as his face and upper body were used as a canvas for the same sort of video mapping we’ve seen applied to the sides of buildings. The result is a little strange, a bit spooky and generally awesome, even if your Portuguese is a bit rusty. Check out the video after the break.

Samsung brings dual-SIM smartphones to India

Android Central

Samsung has launched three new "Duos"-branded smartphones in India, offering dual connectivity to Indian consumers. The Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos will look familiar to anyone who's glanced across Samsung's European line-up, but the Duos variants come with dual-SIM support. Similarly, the Galaxy Ace has been around for around a year, but the Ace Duos includes both GSM and CDMA connectivity.

Dual SIM devices are popular in developing countries, where many phone users operate multiple pre-paid SIMs on different networks, allowing them to take advantage of both networks' coverage areas. However, traditionally users would have to make do with a basic featurephone if they wanted two SIMs in the same device.

The Galaxy Y Duos, Galaxy Y Duos Pro and Galaxy Ace Duos are due to go on sale in India in the coming days. All three devices run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Samsung's TouchWiz 4 UI.

Samsung’s dual SIM kick continues with the Galaxy S II Duos

Just yesterday we got our fist look at the Galaxy Y Duos and the Galaxy Y Pro Duos, Samsung’s latest low-cost mobiles designed for users who need an extra SIM card in their phone. Today Sammy Hub reports on the first details of a more up-market version, based on the ever-popular Galaxy S II platform. The I-929 Galaxy S II Duos mirrors the older models in almost every way, though it appears that there’s a little extra junk in the trunk to accommodate dual SIM card slots.

The specs of the Galaxy S II Duos will be familiar to anyone who’s been following GSII variants for the past few months: a 4.5-inch, 800×480 Super AMOLED display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 16GB of on-board storage. Gingerbread is still the order of the day, but Samsung will likely upgrade the new phones to Ice Cream Sandwich shortly after the international version. Unfortunately you won’t be getting your hands on this in the United States any time soon: the phone is bound for China Telecom at the beginning of next year.

It’s a real shame too, since dual SIM phones are perfect for international travel, and for just about anywhere with a spotty signal. T-Mobile users still happy to get cheaper data plans but frustrated with a smaller coverage area could slide in a prepaid AT&T SIM for when their signal goes out. The 1800mAh battery should be able to handle the trip. Perhaps we’ll be seeing this model at import shops soon.

Samsung Galaxy S II Duos Headed to Chine with Dual GSM/CDMA Support

This image has no alt text

After revealing a duo of dual-SIM handsets yesterday in the form of the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos, Samsung will add to their lineup of handsets with expanded radio capabilities. A new variation on the Samsung Galaxy S II is headed to China and will support both GSM and CDMA2000. The phone is known as — you guessed it — the Samsung Galaxy S II Duos. The specs largely mirror previous GS2 iterations and include a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording. The phone ships with Android 2.3 but should be in line for an Ice Cream Sandwich update along with other members of the Galaxy S II roster. The world phone will be available from China Telecom.

Samsung Announces Dual-SIM Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos

This image has no alt text

Take the Samsung Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro, slap on dual-SIM support, and you have the pair of handsets announced by the Korean manufacturer today. Just with the original lineup of Galaxy Y phones, the new handsets feature 830MHz processors, 3MP rear cameras, and VGA front-facing cameras. The Galaxy Y Pro Duos gets a 2.6-inch touchscreen with a QWERTY keyboard found below, a BlackBerry-esque staple of most handsets with the ‘pro’ label. The Galaxy Y Duos foregoes the keyboard for a 3.14-inch display.

Folks in Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa can expect to see the two new offerings in January, though pricing has not yet been announced. We fully expect the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos to make an appearance at CES in Las Vegas.

Samsung’s Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos do the SIM card two-step

Samsung’s expanding universe of Galaxy-branded phones now includes two new satellites: the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos. The Galaxy Y variants are the first of Samsung’s new “Dous” line. The slate and QWERTY form factors are nothing to write home about, but the insides conceal a surprise: support for dual SIM cards. Otherwise, you get a pair of budget Android phones with GSM radios tuned to international GSM standards.

Both phones run 2.3 Gingerbread with 3-megapixel rear cameras and VGA front-facing cams. The Galaxy Y Duos uses a 3.14-inch LCD screen as its only input aside from Samsung’s standard navigation buttons, while the Galaxy Y Pro Duos shrinks the screen down to 2.6 inches and crams in a full hardware keyboard. Both screens are a disappointing 320 x 240, but at such a small size that’s not a deal-breaker. Samsung’s TouchWiz adorns the interface.

The new dual-SIM phones get 4GB of built-in storage each, with a free 2GB MicroSD card thrown in for good measure. The standard model has a 1300 mAh battery while the Pro gets a slightly expanded 1350 version. These aren’t exactly gunning for the superphone crowd, but they should make solid budget phones. If you frequently travel internationally and swap out SIM cards for local use, the flexible hardware could come in handy. The Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Pro Duos should become available everywhere except the United States starting in January. Prices were not provided.
