Samsung unveiled its new flagship handset a couple of days ago and all major carriers in the United States have confirmed when the handset is going to be released and how much it’s going to cost. Samsung often releases dual-SIM variants of its flagship smartphones in select markets and it’s doing that with the Galaxy Note 7. It has been confirmed that Samsung is going to offer a dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 7 in select markets.
Even though the Galaxy Note 7 is going to be released on August 19th in most markets across the globe, it appears that one retailer in Dubai, UAE is handing out units to pre-order customers ahead of schedule.
A YouTuber had pre-ordered the handset at one of Dubai’s largest electronics retailer and received it yesterday. He posted an unboxing video of the handset on YouTube and it shows that Samsung is providing Galaxy Note 7 Duos to customers in the UAE. Duos means that the handset can support two SIMs simultaneously.
The second SIM in this handset is placed inside a hybrid microSD/nano-SIM slot. It enables the user to have two lines running on their handset at all times. It’s great for those who need two numbers but don’t want to carry two smartphones.
Duos variants of Samsung flagships are rarely released officially in the United States so don’t expect the Galaxy Note 7 Duos to arrive in your local carrier store. If you are in some other market get in touch with Samsung’s retail and carrier partners to find out if the company is providing the dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 7 in your country.
