While most of us are waiting for the Galaxy S7, Samsung is not just focusing on its next flagship. According to a report by the Economic Times, the company is gearing up to launch a dual-SIM version of one of its current flagships, the Galaxy Note 5, in India. The variant will be priced at Rs. 51,400 (32GB storage), Rs. 57,400 (64GB storage), and will go on sale starting January 17.Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Rear-Facign Primary Camera & Heart-Rate MonitorEarlier in 2015, Samsung unveiled the single-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 5 at Rs. 53,900 (32GB version) and Rs. 59,000 (64GB version). However, the device got a price cut, and the 32GB variant is now retailing for as low as Rs. 47,900. The dual-SIM variant will carry the same specifications as the single-SIM.

Samsung is a late bloomer in this segment, as other flagships such as the LG G4 and Sony Xperia Z5 were launched with dual-SIM variants right out of the gate. It would be interesting to see how many buyers turn up for this variant of the Galaxy Note 5.

In a statement given to ET, Manu Sharma, Samsung India’s director for product marketing, said,“In the high-end segment, we saw a very strong trend of people using dual-SIMs in our A series smartphones. Consumers want a premium device, which has a local SIM and space for another SIM.”

To recap, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes with a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. It is powered by an Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor clubbed with 4GB of RAM. In the imaging department, the Note 5 features a 16-megapixel f/1.9 rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. In terms of connectivity, the device supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB 2.0. It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery with wireless fast charging, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the box with TouchWiz UI on top. It is poised to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow update soon.
