Samsung Galaxy S Duos will launch in Europe next month

South Korean firm's new handset looks almost identical to the Galaxy S3

Samsung has unveiled the latest in its Android line-up, the dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S Duos, which will hit European shelves in September

Though there’s no word of a UK release date specifically, the phone will launch in Europe this September before rolling out elsewhere.

It will come running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and boasting dual sim functionality, which is sure to appeal to those wanting to separate their personal and business phones without the need for two handsets.

While looking much like the Galaxy S III, the Duos is a lower spec device, with a 1GHz processor, 1500mAh battery and 4GB of on-board storage. It also comes with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera - 3MP less than the S III.

Samsung’s blog post also states that the specs of the LTE version might be different – could a 4G version possibly be on the way for LTE-ers? Only time will tell.
