A dual-SIM version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will reportedly be sold in China. My Drivers, a Chinese website, had already published images of the special version which shows clearly the two SIM card slots labelled SIM 1 and SIM 2 behind the phablet’s back cover. Chinese consumers can avail of the dual-SIM phablet from China Telecom.
Dual-SIM capabilities may not be popular all over the world, but in some areas, they have proven to be quite useful. Dual-SIM devices for one, enable users to avail of the best deals in calls and SMS from two different networks. Moreover, those who prefer using one SIM card for personal use and another for work will no longer need to bring two phones through the dual-SIM feature. It is likewise useful for those who travel frequently as it lets them use their personal SIM and another bought in their place of travel.
Apart from the dual-SIM capabilities, however, said Galaxy Note 2 model will sport the same features as the phablet what Samsung unveiled during IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
