Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 is a dual SIM Android smartphone, produced and marketed by Samsung Electronics, which serves as an immediate successor to the original Galaxy S Duos of 2012. Unveiled on 30 November 2013 at some Asian markets, it was initially released on December 5, 2013 in several countries.[2] In contrast with other dual sim Samsung models, this phone is a part of the high-end "S" series, this is why it is marketed as a part of the "Galaxy S" family. Despite being called as a direct successor to the original S Duos phone, external and physical design of the model is identical to the original model, placing emphasis on internal upgrades such as upgraded processor and updated Operating System software.

Specifications[edit]

Hardware and Design[edit]

The design of the S Duos 2 is the same as the design of the S Duos. It features a rounded, polycarbonate chassis, faux metal trim and a removable rear cover, typical of most Samsung smartphones since the Galaxy S III. The S Duos 2 is available in Black, and White frost color finishes. The S Duos 2's screen is a 4.0-inch (102 mm) 233p TFT LCD panel, which is the same as that of the S Duos, but does not allow for automatic brightness and gamut adjustments due to lacking an ambient sensor like its predecessor.[3]

Unlike entry-level dual SIM models from Samsung, the S Duos 2 is active on both SIMs all the time so it is ready to receive calls on either SIM when a call is not already in progress. Optionally it can receive two calls simultaneously but this requires divert-on-not-reachable to be set up on each number and is subject to availability from the carrier and may incur additional charges. A limitation of the phone is that only one SIM can be active on UMTS (and therefore data) at a time and so it may be unsuitable for certain combinations of networks.

The S Duos 2 also contains a 1500mAh removable battery. It last somewhere in 4-5 hours in heavy usage and just over 3 hours in gaming.

Software[edit]

The S Duos 2 ships with Android 4.2.2 "Jelly Bean" and Samsung's TouchWiz software. The S Duos 2 adds the some of the Galaxy S4's features such as the widgets which were upgraded to the Samsung proprietary widgets used by models bearing the version of the OS.
