Korean mobile phones giant, Samsung Group, has unleashed its first set of dual-SIM Android phones - the Galaxy Y Duos and the Galaxy Y Pro Duos.

The devices, 11.98mm thick, come with a metallic casing, which the company claims gives it an elegant and appealing look. The phones sport 3.14 and 2.6-inch displays, will run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and are powered by an 832MHz processor. It is unclear, as yet, if the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will port on these phones.

The phones incorporate the ChatON service, which provides a unified platform for e-mail, social networking and instant messaging.

The Pro Duos are focused at professionals and office users and ships with a full QWERTY keypad and a scaled-down 2.6-inch display. Preloaded software includes an office suite - Polaris and a security tool - Find My Mobile.


The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos are set to release first in Russia, in Jan. 2012, followed by Europe, CIS, Latin America, Southwest Asia, Middle East and Africa. In addition, the Galaxy Y Duos will be available in China and Southeast Asia also.
