The latest Samsung Duos is a Galaxy S Duos and looks just like a mini Galaxy S III.  If it’s not broken, right? Well Samsung has seemingly done just that, taking the GSIII down a few notches.  Back toward the late end of July the latest in Samsung Duos made its leaky way to the top of the internet’s with some press shots and a few details about specification. Monday Samsung took the internet to make things official. The latest in Galaxies, the Galaxy S Duos has been confirmed and will release across the European markets in September and into additional markets shortly thereafter. Pricing and exact dates have yet to be confirmed however most are expecting the full spread come IFA in Berlin next week. But what can you expect from the Galaxy S Duos? Well, it’s really is like a smaller, dumb down Galaxy S III that can pull double SIM duties. It starts with a 4 inch touch screen that offers up a 480×800 pixel resolution at 233 pixels per inch. It runs the likes of Android version 4.0 and is uniquely skinned with Samsungs latest Nature UX. Internally she runs a single core 1 GHz Cortex-A5 processor that gets a bit of graphics help from an Adreno 200, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage and of course expandable microSDHC memory up to 32GB. Around back a 5 mega pixel camera with LED flash and video recording capabilities can be found. Up front a VGA quality front facing shooter is available for all your video conferencing needs. Additionally connectivity is provided by Bluetooth version 3.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b, g, n and micro USB. And that’s about it on the spec front however; the Galaxy S Duos does something most phones cannot. It can easily handle two different SIM cards. This means you could have two different carriers connected to the same device.
