Dual SIM Galaxy S6 will be released for the Philippines

It is not uncommon for Samsung to release dual SIM variants of its smartphones for certain markets. In the West dual SIM smartphones aren’t popular that much but in emerging markets around the world they tend to do well. Which is why it isn’t surprising to hear that the dual SIM Galaxy S6 will be released for the Philippines. According to a report Samsung Philippines had specifically requested for this variant as the international version of the Galaxy S6 comes with a single SIM slot.

Even though both SIM slots of the Galaxy S6 will support nano SIM cards only one will be compatible with 4G LTE networks. As far as the Philippines variant of the Galaxy S6 edge is concerned it will only have a single SIM slot. Philippines is said to be among the launch markets that get the new devices on April 10th. Initially only the 32GB and 64GB models of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge will be released in the country, before the 128GB models arrive at some point in the future.

TBH, i would prefer a micro SD slot over a dual sim.

i cant afford for 128gb so i would go for 64gb.. I have many of my pics and memory.. Their price would be more than I6+ as rumored so no use buddy… I want Edge

32 / 64 / 128 internal
+ Cloud services
+ your computer’s hard drives
+ OTG adapters.

you were saying no options ? Do you need to carry more than 128 gb data just in 1 phone daily around ?

Now this is bullshit… If they can make dual sim phone why not micro sd ??
who the hell is cared about dual sim at this high end phone ? Infact my experience with dual sim phone on samsung is the worst… Not required for a flagship phone to be dual sim..
A micro SD slot would have increased their sales more than 100% than their dual sim.
Shame on you samsung…No reason for dual sim…

Cool down, it says,.. specifically requested by SamsungPH. The rest of the world can ignore this one as it will only be available in the Philippines where dual sim smartphones are well-accepted.

Nope, for practical reasons i woud say.
Telcos here in Ph charge their subscribers uncosiderably high when calling/sending messages to other providers.
So, having 2 sim slots in 1phone is a lot better than having two separate regular phones.

s4 LTE —-> S6.. Perfect upgrade for me. Don’t care about not having a microsd slot. 8gb internal is just enough for me. 32gb/64gb internal is already a big bonus.
Non-removable battery? It’s much easier and more convenient to use power bank than removing the back cover and inserting an extra battery.

If Samsung can put dual sim on the S6, then I call Bulls**t on no SD memory slot :/

Exactly. Plus I like to transfer my SD card from PC, to Tablet to Camera, from time to time.

So there is NO alternative to it. F cloud, F OTG adaptors, F all that.
