In a very expected Note (hehe), Samsung has launched a dual SIM version of their increasingly popular Galaxy Note 3 phablet. I said expected because other phones in the Galaxy line get the same treatment shortly after their release.

This Dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Note 3 uses the Snapdragon 800 processor, meaning that it’s LTE – capable. Other than the added SIM slot, everything is exactly the same as the single SIM version. I’ve never used any of the dual-SIM versions of the Galaxies before, but it would have been nice if they came with a bigger battery. Methinks the extra antenna would affect battery life (which is why I never went back to dual-SIM devices).

These dual-SIM versions usually come out in China first, and this is no exception. No word on whether it’ll be launched officially here, and I doubt whether any telco will carry this version. If you’re really interested with this version, then your best bet is via online stores, such as Kimstore.

If you’re cautious about Samsung’s recent policy regarding the region-locking of their devices, fret not. As clarified here, region is as broad as continents, so unless you plan on buying a US or EU version of the phone, you’re not going to run into any trouble. :-)

The Dual-SIM Galaxy Note 3 version is priced as EU735, which is roughly PHP43,000. That’s a lot of smackers, but if the base model is any indication, then it would be worth it.
