The dual-SIM version of the freshly-launched Samsung Galaxy S4 is now available in China which retails for ï¿¥5699 for the 16GB and ï¿¥5899 for the 32GB. That’s about Php38k and Php39.3k respectively.
This version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 carries the model number GT-I9502 and sports Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa chipset. That’s a 1.6GHz quad-core processor for resource-heavy usage and can throttle down to 1.2GHz quad-core processor automatically to save on battery.
This phone uses a regular SIM for the GSM slot, and a microSIM for the WCDMA slot. It’s not capable of LTE unlike its single-SIM Qualcomm brother and can only do up to HSPA+ so if LTE’s important to you, then you might want to pass on this one.
ï¿¥5699 is also the price of the dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note II when it was made available in China last year. The local release of the single-SIM Samsung Galaxy S4 retails for Php30,990.[jd.com]
