The device is similar in specs to the Samsung Galaxy SII, with a camera resembling that of the Samsung Galaxy Ace and a design like the Samsung Galaxy SIII. This phone also has S Voice, which is a feature of the high-end Samsung Galaxy S4. A key selling point of the device is the ability to have and use two SIM cards simultaneously – a feature Samsung has announced, but not specified how it shall work yet.[4]
