The power to wield dual SIM cards is the hotness right now. At least Samsung seems to think so. With the Samsung D880 DuoS holding down the high-end of the dual-SIM market in Europe and the Samsung P240 DuoS bringing up the low-end, Samsung apparently wants to hit the mid-range of with the Samsung D780 DuoS.
Samsung is billing the Samsung D780 as the 300 EUR mid-ranger to handle the dual SIM card duties in a monoblock/candybar form-factor. The Samsung D780 sports a 2 megapixel camera, 2.1-inch QVGA display, tri-band (900/1800/1900Mhz) GSM/EDGE radio, FM radio, and microSD card slot in a 15.7mm thick package.
Interestingly, the Samsung D780 looks just like and sports the same feature-set as the Samsung P240 that Samsung’s Russian head Yoonsoo Kim showed off last month. And, just like the Samsung P240, the Samsung D780 is headed to Russia first. Did Mr. Kim mistakenly refer to the lower-end DuoS handset as the P240 instead of the Samsung D780? It would make sense to tag the dual-SIM handset with a “D” rather than the “P” that’s reserved for Sammy’s upper-range luxury handsets. Is Mr. Kim’s Samsung P240 actually the Samsung D780?
We’ll just have to wait and see what Samsung does with the Samsung D780 before we know anything…
