Samsung Galaxy Trend 3 with dual-SIM capability unveiled in China

Samsung introduced a new dual-SIM Android smartphone for the Chinese market – Galaxy Trend 3. The device that comes as a successor to the previously unveiled Galaxy Trend II has low-to-mid end specs that include a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1,800mAh battery, and a microSD expansion slot, while Android 4.2 is running the show. It also sports two SIM card slots, making sure you can use it with two different networks at once.

Samsung China’s official website is showing four different models, all of which have the same features: the Galaxy Trend 3 marked as G3502U will be offered unlocked, G3502 is heading to for China Unicom, G3508 to China Mobile, and G3509 to China Telecom.

It’s not clear whether this model will ever make it to the Western hemisphere but we do know we won’t miss it even if Samsung decides to limit its availability to China and few other countries in Asia. After all, we’re talking about a phone that’s pretty much the Galaxy S II under the hood…

    I’m in China now, and I want to get a fully english phone! if I get this, is there a way to delete any Chinese language thing in the phone?

    If I get any other Samsung smartphone in China, is there any way to have it work fully in English like I bought the phone in teh US or other English speaking countires? Can I connect the phone to the computer and reinstall the system or so?

    Thanks a lot

      You’ll need the ROM that they release for UK, US, Australia etc. The location based functionality might be limited, but you’ll get a fully English UI alright.

      As for this particular phone, it’ll most probably not be released in the developed markets, so you’ll have to wait for it to be released in the English speaking developing markets like India and South Africa before you get a fully English version as you desire.

      That’s to the best of my understanding anyways. :-)
