Samsung Galaxy S Duos 3 goes on sale at an Indian retailer
Samsung is back with a new device to add to its galactically large lineup of smartphones. Over in India, the Galaxy S Duos 3 has made an unofficial appearance, with a Mumbai-based retailer already having stock of the device. The same retailer leaked the existence of the Galaxy Ace NXT before its announcement – oddly, both devices share a common model number, which suggests Samsung is trying to sell the same device under different names, something that might be a new way for the company to extend its smartphone lineup.
The Galaxy S Duos 3 sports very average specs thanks to its low-end nature, though they’re surprisingly better than what we’ve seen on other Samsung devices in its price range. It has a 4-inch WVGA (800×480) display, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a VGA front camera, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, dual SIM slots, and a 1,500 mAh battery. The phone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, and is expected to be priced at around INR 8,590 (or $141.)
