Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S5 Goes Official in China

Following its official unveiling at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Galaxy S5, the latest flagship Android-based handset from Samsung, has started to emerge in various markets out there, and it is now official in China.

Samsung has announced the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S5 in China, where the country’s largest wireless carrier, China Telecom, will launch it. The smartphone was unveiled in the country with model number G9009D attached to it, and is expected to arrive on shelves in the country with a price tag of CNY5,299 ($850), as can be seen on this page on Samsung's Chinese website. Apparently, the company will bring the single-SIM flavor of Galaxy S5 to the market in China as well. Both devices are expected to hit shelves in the country on April 11, as SamMobile notes. The two versions of the handset are expected to sport similar hardware specifications, except, of course, for the number of SIM cards that can be inserted inside them, and the connectivity capabilities.

This means that both of them will feature the same 5.1-inch full HD touchscreen display that Galaxy S5 was unveiled with in February, and that they will also pack a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor inside. For those out of the loop, we should note that the mobile phone was made official with 2GB of RAM, as well as with 16GB of internal memory, and that it packs a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes. On the back, the Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera, which can record videos in 4K resolution. A 2MP front camera for making video calls was also included. Samsung Galaxy S5 was also unveiled with a dust- and water-resistant body, with IP67 certification. The smartphone is powered by a 2800 mAh battery. The handset also comes with the usual set of connectivity capabilities and sensors packed inside.

The new flagship smartphone from Samsung arrives on the market running under Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI loaded on top. This means that users can enjoy a variety of exclusive applications and capabilities, including S Voice, S Health, Smart stay, Smart pause, Smart scroll, Air gestures, and the usual set of Google apps, such as Google Search, Maps, Gmail, Calendar, Google Talk, Picasa, and YouTube. The unveiling of a dual-SIM version of the mobile phone in China could signal the future release of the device in other markets out there too, since handsets with such capabilities are highly appreciated in various other countries too. Stay tuned for more on the matter.
