Philips will soon launch a new Android smartphone that not only has a big screen, but also dual-SIM capability. In that sense, the forthcoming Philips W8355 will compete head to head with Samsung’s Galaxy Grand i9082, which is a slightly better device.
Specs wise, aside from two SIM card slots – Philips’ baby packs a 5.3-inch qHD (540×960 pixels) screen, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is running the show. As for the size, it measures 147.679×10.9 mm.
Sammy’s phone on the other hand has a faster CPU clocked at 1.2Ghz (also dual-core), 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera, with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean providing the latest bells and whistles the platform has to offer. Then again, it has a smaller 5-inch screen with WVGA (480×800 pixels) resolution.
When it comes to availability, the Philips W8355 will most likely be limited to users in China and some other parts of Asia…
