The Galaxy S Duos 2 goes official in India, albeit the “new” handheld is an almost identical twin of the “old” one, launched more than a year ago.
The S Duos 2 is 2 grams lighter than its predecessor, but equally as thin, plus its overall external appearance is a blatant rip-off Galaxy S3′s.
Softwarewise the S Duos 2 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, two whole OS generations ahead of the ICS pre-loaded on the first-gen S Duos. Also, the CPU has been slightly upgraded, from a 1 GHz dual-core model to 1.2 GHz, though the meager 768 MB RAM is unfortunately still in place.
India is to get the Galaxy S Duos 2 for roughly $175 by the end of December.
