Samsung Galaxy S6 has a dual SIM model and it’s headed to Philippines first

Samsung is not used to launching dual SIM variants of its flagship phones right away, but in the case of the new Galaxy S6, that is supposedly what the electronics giant is ready to do. The model that will be outed in the Philippines will apparently kick in two nano SIM card slots, with only one among them supporting 4G LTE networks.

If the company deems the said country a comprehensive enough market for dual SIM flagships, there’s every chance that it will be released in India as well, if such a model of the Samsung Galaxy S6 actually exists. However nothing official has been said about this matter until now.

Phone Arena has cited a Philippines-based website named YugaTech which is claiming to have learned about the dual SIM Galaxy S6 through the company’s representatives. The country’s branch purportedly asked the headquarters in South Korea to deliver a dual SIM variant of the device.
