Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note II launching in China on November 24

Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note II launching in China on November 24

Back in September, we’ve told you that Samsung is working on a special version of the Galaxy Note II for the Chinese market. This model will keep all of the good things of the original device while adding a second SIM card slot to the mix. However, this doesn’t mean such a phone can work all around the world with one SIM card slot being used for a CDMA network and the other one for GSM-based one. In comparison, CDMA operators in the U.S. like Verizon and Sprint don’t support SIM cards.

Anyway, according to Chinese website Bolopad, China Telecom will be the first carrier in the country (and the whole world for that matter) to offer the dual-SIM Galaxy Note II. Those looking to grab this powerful phablet will have to wait until November 24th, when the floodgates will open, allowing rich Chinese to get into high-end Android action. As for the price, we’re hearing that the off-contract Note II will cost 5,199 CNY, which translates into some $835. Pretty steep…
