The yet another stylish product from Samsung family with brighter display and of course with its dual SIM capability capturing customers eyes in market. The official release of the phone was in September, 2012. Both the SIM will be active on the same time and ready to receive calls. It can also receive 2 calls simultaneously if divert-on-busy is set up on each number.
The one limitation of dual SIM technology is that only one SIM can be active on UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) and therefore data also.

While looking into its design it can be termed as a junior of Galaxy s3. The rounded – edge design, the button appearance and the overall form gives the Galaxy s3 look alike. It is typically a light-weight product of about 120g. It is available in market in Black, white and La Fleur colors.
It has good battery life. It survive a day with intensive use and 2 or 3 days for normal use. Another advantage of dual SIM is that people can have the same phone for both private and work use.
