Samsung Galaxy Y Duo and Galaxy Y Pro Duos announced

Samsung has just announced two new phones for international markets. Known as the Galaxy Y Duos and Galaxy Y Duos Pro, both have a low-end feature set, most likely targeting emerging markets. The specs for the Galaxy Y Duos include a 3.1″ QVGA display, 3 megapixel camera, and 1,300 mAh battery. It will run Android 2.3 under Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.

The Galaxy Duos Pro gets a little more interesting, featuring a form factor very similar to a Blackberry with a full keyboard. It has a smaller 2.6″ display, 3 megapixel camera on the back, VGA camera on the front, as well as a slightly larger 1,350mAh battery. It will also feature TouchWiz, with Android 2.3 running the show.

Both will have a rather unique feature, the ability to hold and use dual-SIM cards. This could be very appealing for business users, or anyone who travels internationally frequently. It will first be launched in Russia, then rolling out to Europe, Africa, CIS, Latin America, Southwest Asia, and the Middle East. It probably won’t make its way to the US, but one can hope. Anyone like Samsung’s new duo? Should they bring it to North America? Let us know in the comments!
