The recently leaked Galaxy S Duos 2 has been somewhat confirmed as a retailer in India has disclosed that the smartphone is expected to make its debut in the country in a few days. It doesn’t end there – Even price details of the handset have been divulged, pegging the device at around Rs 10,990.
These details were disclosed by retailer Mahesh Telecom through Twitter. The handset’s original cost is slated as Rs 11,230, but as you probably know, various outlets offer lower prices. The S Duos 2 is the successor to the previous release which was based on the first flagship from the Galaxy S series. This revision will be an entry-level offering, featuring upgraded specifications.
The design, however, hasn’t been modified much. Based on the images provided by Hungarian website Tech2, the handset will continue to carry the traditional Galaxy design. Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S Duos 2 will have the same display, a 4-inch WVGA TFT panel, but instead of Android ICS, it comes with 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The processor has also been bumped from a single core chip to a dual core 1.2GHz AP with 768MB of RAM. Other details revealed by the leak include a 5MP AF camera with flash, a VGA webcam, a 1500mAh battery and 32GB memory expandability. There’s also mention of Multi-Window support, but we’re not quite sure who that will work on a 4-inch display.
