Dual-SIM phones aren’t exactly new in this day and age, but how about a triple SIM capable phone?

QiiQ EcoCarrier has come up with a triple SIM supporting mobile phone, though only two SIMs are active at the same time. Nevertheless, this phone does give users a hassle-free way of switching between three SIM cards without having to open up their mobile phone to physically make the swap. The exact name of the phone is yet to be disclosed, but it’s already confirmed to feature a 2-megapixel camera, 2.6-inch touchpanel, and a very capable 2000 mAh battery. It also comes with tri-band (900/1800/1900) connectivity on one SIM slot with the other supporting 900/1800 dual-band GSM connectivity.

Even with Samsung leading the dual-SIM fray, active dual-SIM phones are not making much of an impact in the global market and we highly doubt this one will be any different. Nonetheless, this does give us an idea of some of the more unique handsets being developed overseas.

If you’re the type who likes to keep more than two SIM cards at your disposal at any given time, then this might just be what the doctor ordered.
