In an effort to diversify their dual-SIM portfolio, Samsung is coming out with the S9402 DuoS. It’s another active dual-SIM capable phone, but this time around, adds a more high-end material to make it more appealing for the wealthier segment of the market.
It comes with a hardened, scratch-resistant glass and metal frame covered with rhodium, a chemical and mechanical damage resistant platinum group metal. It may not be as glamorous and excessively luxurious as the Vertu, but its use of premium materials will nevertheless entice those who put a premium on quality workmanship.
As for its phone features, it’ll come with a 2-inch QVGA AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabilization, smile detection and LED flash, triband GSM for the first SIM, dual band GSM for the second SIM, GPRS/EDGE, 1GB built-in memory, Bluetooth, and microSDHC card support up to 8GB. No 3G and WiFi on this baby, but that’ll mean it won’t be excessively expensive either. No word yet on when and where it will be released so keep your eyes peeled for this one if you’re looking to get yourself a decent-looking dual-SIM phone.
