Although Samsung did not initially announce a dual SIM variant of the Galaxy S6, it seems that three big markets will get it after all.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and did not mention any dual SIM variant expected to launch next month. On the other hand, it looks like markets where dual SIM smartphones sell really well, like China or Russia, will get their dual SIM Galaxy S6 handsets, after all. While this has not been officially confirmed yet, there are plenty of rumors about it and even some pictures that show a Galaxy S6 with its tray for two SIM cards.

Chinese website igao7 has a few exclusive images of the dual SIM Galaxy S6 and other websites added Russia and the Philippines to the list of countries that should get this variant next month. The official name of this Galaxy S6 variant is SM-G9200 and it will be carried by Netcom. According to the same igao7, Netcom confirmed the arrival of this Galaxy S6 smartphone with dual SIM capabilities.

Android Community also reports that a Russian online retailer listed the Galaxy S6 Duos a few days ago which is, in fact, a dual SIM Galaxy S6 with 64 GB internal storage. While one of the two SIM slots will offer 4G LTE support, these handsets will apparently have a non-replaceable battery and will not offer microSD support. We will get back to the dual SIM Galaxy S6 as soon as we hear more about it, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
