Samsung launches a slew of dual-SIM smartphones & feature phones in India
Samsung has launched a bunch of dual-SIM handsets, three smartphones – Galaxy Ace Duos, Galaxy Y Pro Duos, Galaxy Y Duos and two feature phones – the Champ Deluxe Duos and Star 3 Duos in India.
While the vendor is claiming to have launched its set of dual-SIM smartphones for the first time here in India but we still don’t understand why Samsung gives such super long names to its phones. Also, we have now officially lost count of the number of Galaxy models currently running in the market.
