Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note II in the flesh
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is the top-selling phone/tablet device in the market today and you know what’s better than the Note II? A dual-SIM version of it which I’m sure will be a hit to Filipinos where having multiple SIM is getting to be a common thing.
Unfortunately for us, the dual-SIM SGN2 is only available in China which was released early this month. Haven’t seen our usual grey stores shipping them in yet but I managed to get close and intimate with one straight from China.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II retails for RMB5,699 but my sister was able to bring it down to RMB5,199 which is about Php35,000. That’s about Php5k more than its single-SIM brother.
Obviously, there’s nothing different from the outside. Everything’s pretty much the same, the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, the plastic glossy finish, and the S-Pen tucked in at the bottom corner.
What’s special is on the inside where you can find the slots for your two SIMs. One houses a regular SIM and another one just below the microSD slot requires a microSIM. Only the microSIM supports WCDMA so use your primary number there for 3G connection.
There’s no word from Samsung PH if this device will find its way here. Maybe if a lot of interest is generated, our usual online gadget stores can bring a few units in.
