Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ smartphones at the Galaxy Unpacked last week. Now the Galaxy Note5 Duos (SM-G9198) has been revealed by ePrice in Taiwan (Via). It shows two nano SIM card slots, but these are not hybrid SIM card slots like the Galaxy A series, so you can’t use the secondary SIM slot as a microSD expansion slot. This confirms earlier rumors and puts an end to rumors that said that dual SIM variant will have a microSD card slot.

Samsung recently said that it doesn’t have plans to launch 128GB variants of Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ smartphones, so you have only 32GB and 64GB options to choose. The dual SIM version also has a Duos branding on the back. The smartphone has also been listed on the Samsung China, Philippines and Indonesia website. Samsung is also taking pre-orders for the dual SIM version of the smartphone in Philippines through Samsung Experience Stores between August 17th and 30th.

It is not clear if Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy Note5 Duos in India. We will have to wait for the official India launch event to find out.
