The Galaxy S6 is now available for pre-order in the US on national carriers Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile (sorry Verizon customers; you’ll have to wait until April 1st). As for US customers who want to get their hands-on time with the devices, Best Buy’s got you covered.

With all the GS6 and S6 edge rage in the US, however, Samsung’s still prepping its devices for the remaining worldwide markets. New information out of China confirms that the Chinese market will have its own dual-SIM Galaxy S6 variant, in addition to Russia and the Philippines. China is reported to be on the verge of an official Galaxy S6 announcement in the country on March 31st.

The Chinese site in question shows the dual-SIM card slot in a clear photo, while mentioning that the dual-SIM Chinese Galaxy S6 will bear the model number “SM-G9200” as confirmed by carrier Netcom. The dual-SIM GS6 will feature pre-loaded apps such as Baidu, Paypal Wallet, FlipBoard, Taobao, WhatsApp, and others. Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will come along for the ride. Netcom has said that it will carry the dual-SIM Galaxy S6 model, and this matches the dual-SIM Chinese certification we reported on earlier this month.

Dual-SIM smartphones are useful for a number of reasons, to get more 3G/4G data without paying extra each month and work/leisure separation, to name a few. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are expected to go on sale worldwide on April 10th.

Update: More images of the dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy S6 have surfaced on the Internet, and this time around, software side of the device has been revealed. The 64GB variant of the Galaxy S6 dual-SIM has a price tag of RUB 52,990 ($901), but currently there is no information regarding the price and availability of 32GB and 128GB variants of this device.
