I did not include the other specifications since both of them have it. Although it is still not confirmed, Samsung has added SNS integration and HTML and Adobe Flash for the Galaxy Y Duos’ browser.
Now that we have their specifications compared, we can see some changes from the Galaxy Y to Galaxy Y Duos. First, the CPU or the Central Processing Unit of the Galaxy Y Duos is faster by 2MHz only. Not a great improvement but Samsung has significantly increase the ROM and RAM of Galaxy Y Duos, from 180MB ROM and 290MB RAM to 512MB ROM and 384MB RAM.
The sensor for its camera is already increased. From 2 megapixel to 3.15 megapixel, and a video capture capability of 15 frames per second to 24 frames per second. Although there are no camera samples or photo samples taken using the Galaxy Y Duos yet.
The dimensions and weight of the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is slightly bigger and heavier also. Battery is also improved from 1200 mAh to 1300 mAh. The display of Galaxy Y Duos is also slightly bigger, from 3.0 inches to 3.14 inches. But, although the screen size is slightly bigger, the pixel density of the Galaxy Y Duos is reduced from 133ppi to 127ppi. Display might be not as good as the Galaxy Y S5360.
And of course, the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos is a dual SIM smartphone, meaning it has two slots for two SIM cards and can switch from one network to another instantly.
With regards to Samsung Galaxy Y Duos’ price, there is no information yet. The Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 had an SRP of Php5,990 ($140 USD) when it was first released in the market. My guess is, the price of Galaxy Y Duos might be more expensive than the Galaxy Y S5360.
