Samsung confirms dual-SIM Galaxy Y Duos and Y Pro Duos.

Those waiting for a dual-SIM smartphone need wait no longer, especially if they are Android loyalists. They can now choose from Samsung’s two new devices: the Galaxy Y Duos and the Y Pro Duos, whcih were introduced today.

Samsung’s newest offerings are convenient for those who like to keep different phone numbers for their work and personal lives. What’s more, data can be used on these phones according to a person’s data plan, regardless of the SIM card.

Both these handsets work on GSM, on band frequencies of 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz.

The Galaxy Y Duos runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and is powered by a 1300 mAh battery. It has a 3.1-inch QVGA touchscreen and sports a 3MP fixed focus camera. The phone offers everything a mid range Android device does.

The Galaxy Y Pro Duos, as the name suggests, falls in the slightly higher-end spectrum.

Powered by a 1350 mAh battery, it too, runs on the Android Gingerbread operating system. What sets this phone apart is its full QWERTY keypad that accompanies its smaller 2.6’-inch screen.

Along with the 3MP camera, the Pro comes with an additional front facing VGA camera.

Though Samsung is yet to comment on the pricing of its newest handsets, it has hinted at an early 2012 release.

The phones will hit stores worldwide starting January of next year.

Though the Galaxy Y Duos and the Galaxy Y Pro Duos don’t feature the sophisticated ICS, they are functional phones in their own right. And the way the tech world works, the Duos might just get a taste of the ICS OS in the near future.
