We don’t usually associate Gigabyte with innovation in the mobile industry. Their products are rather mediocre at best, offering a decent feature set for a reasonable amount of cash. The GSmart Simba SX1 fits that description perfectly, but… it also has a “secret trick” no other phone we’re aware of has. And that trick gave Gigabyte’s baby the title of the “first smartphone with three-way talking feature in the world.”
You see, the Simba SX1 is a dual-SIM Android smartphone that keeps both your SIM cards active at all times. Moreover, it provides the option to “put the first call on hold and invite the other incoming call to conference group” — all without requiring any extra software or mobile operator service. Pretty cool, right? Too bad Gigabyte won’t make this phone available all around the world.
Rest of the specs include Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, 5-inch HD screen, 13-megapixel camera with flash on the back, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity support, and 4GB of expandable storage.
The Gigabyte GSmart Simba SX1 will be released this month in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Taiwan. It’s already available in Romania, where it’s selling for 1,299 RON (about $392).
