All those who are waiting for slashing the Price of Samsung Galaxy SIII, there’s a good news for all those who are ready to compromise with the smaller version i.e. Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. The design of this new smartphone is a lookalike of Galaxy SIII, with few differences in screen size, dimensions, Camera and battery. Now the noticeable thing is that the new smartphone has a Dual SIM option of GSM slots only.
In the Mid of this year Samsung announced this smartphone, and the Release date of Samsung Galaxy S Duos September 2012. The overall design of this new Samsung Smartphone is quite similar to Galaxy SIII
Complete Specifications and Features of Samsung Galaxy S Duos
Dimensions and Display
The smartphone is quite a good in shape as its dimensions are 121.5 x 63.1 x 10.5 mm, the phone is having curvy edges like Galaxy SIII, and this phone is not as bulky or lighter in weight as it is weighing 120 gm, which I think is equivalent to any other smartphone in this range. On the top it has 3.5 mm Audio jack and on behind it has speaker. Now if we talk about the display type of Samsung galaxy S Duos then it has a 4 inch TFT Capacitive touchscreen panel having a resolution of 16M colors. Like any other latest phone of this range this device also comes with a multitouch input method for faster zoom in and zoom out.
Internal Memory and Camera Functionality
Samsung Galaxy S Duos is already packed with an internal memory of 4 GB which I think need to be increased after the initial few days using an external memory card of upto 32Gb. Why I am saying this, is because this android smartphone, and will consume lots of memory with pre-installed applications, and further it will get loaded with more application which will be downloaded from Android Market. Other things will be the gallery and music, so these are the few things which lets you to increase the memory of the device. For better functionality Samsung has inserted a 768 Mb RAM for smooth functioning but I think this should be 1GB, because When you use an external Micro SD card this could hang this device.
Galaxy S Duos has Dual camera Rear and Front camera for both video calling and pictures & video shooting. The rear camera is of 5 MP with an autofocus function and LED flash for clicking pictures in dull light or at night. Front camera is VGA only, its pretty fine for one to one video call.
Connectivity and Operating System
Unlike any other smartphone, Samsung galaxy S Duos supports USB 2.0 connectivity, which I think should be 3.0 for high speed transfer rate. But they have installed Bluetooth version 3.0 against USB 2.0. Next is talk about Wifi, which is the latest one i.e. Wifi 802.11 b/g/n and with that it also has hotspot connectivity.

The handset supports GPS functionality, has Radio installed inside, also has document viewer (like word, excel, powerpoint and PDF files).
Battery Backup and Price of Samsung Galaxy S Duos
The device is Android based then during the initial Time you may find that battery is a flaw. So let me remind you that every Android phone battery depends on the usage, i.e. more you use more will be the battery consumed. If we talk about this Galaxy S Duos, then it has good battery time of 13 hr while continuous using the device, i.e. on Talktime mode, while when your phone is on complete standby the battery backup is 445 hr.
The price of Samsung Galaxy S Duos is variable in market as well in online buy.
