Samsung quietly announces Galaxy Note 4 duos in China


Samsung introduced its flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 4 about a month ago and today, the company has announced three dual-SIM variants of its Note 4 phablet in China.

One of the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 4 versions is designed to work on China Telecom, while the other belongs to China Unicom. The South Korean manufacturer has also showcased a SIM-free model, which we expect to work outside the Chinese land.

The first SIM card on all the three versions will host LTE and guess what? It supports both TDD and FDD networks (Chinese and International bands). The second SIM is 2G only and will support 900/1800/1900MHz bands. You will have to use microSIM cards on both the slots.

The contact free version of the Galaxy Note 4 duos supports all the TDD LTE bands for both China Telecom and China Unicom. The China Telecom model offers 2G and 3G CDMA connectivity on the first SIM.

The SIM-free variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 duos will cost you CNY 5,400 (about $880 or INR 54,000) and there’s no word on the pricing of the other two models. Unfortunately, there is no word on the availability of the dual-SIM variant of Galaxy Note 4 outside China for now.
