Samsung has announced its new Android smartphone, Galaxy Ace Duos. Users, who would like to use dual SIM slots, can go for the new Galaxy Ace Duos. The Korean giant had announced the smartphone with the same name back in February. But it lacked dual-SIM capability. The old model was a CDMA/GSM smartphone, whereas the new one is a dual-SIM GSM model.

"With dual SIM convenience, enhanced connectivity, and performance features, the Galaxy Ace Duos delivers a sleek design and incredible features intended to provide consumers with a smartphone that meets their hidden needs," said J K Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division, at Samsung.
