Samsung officially launched a dual SIM variant of their current flagship device Galaxy S5 in China. The device will only be available with the biggest telecom carrier network China telecom and will be bearing the model number G9009D. Galaxy S5 Dual SIM is currently priced at $850 (CNY5,299) and will be available starting from April 11th along with the standard edition. Among the 2 SIM cards, one will support CDMA2000 while the other slot supports GSM.
Except for the dual SIM feature, the device will remain having same features which the normal version of Galaxy S5 has. That includes a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, 5.1-inch full-HD screen, 2 GB RAM, 16 MP ISOCELL camera, 16 GB internal memory, 2800 mAh battery and IP67 dust and water resistant certification. Considering the dual SIM version will need more battery power for the two networks, this new variant will have a slightly lesser batter back up. For now the device is exclusive to China Mobile, but we’re not sure if that will remain so, considering the fact that Samsung is known to launch dual SIM variants of their devices in other countries too.
