We already know that this is coming, probably because the leaked Galaxy S4 in China before the official announcement was of this kind. Well, that took a month or so but at least it’s finally confirmed. The Dual-SIM Galaxy S4 will have a model number of GT-I9502.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9502 has the exact same specs as the GT-i9500 variant sans the dual-SIM support. Meaning, it’ll get the Exynos 5 Octa 5410 which means it’ll have a quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 plus a quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, 2GB RAM, and PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU. Other key features are the 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, 13-megapixel main camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top.

Another Chinese model, the i9508, is a single SIM Galaxy S4 which sports a Snapdragon 600 chipset. Unlike the I9502, this one is more specific to China as it supports TD-SCDMA which is the 3G technology in the country.
Samsung actually has a pattern regarding the model numbers of their devices and the ‘0’ refers to the international version (in this case, the Exynos), ‘5’ for the LTE variant (and probably the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset), ‘2’ for dual-SIM, and ‘8’ for the Chinese version.
We’re not sure if the Dual SIM Galaxy S4 will make its way outside China but we’re keeping our hopes up for it. We’ll let you know once we get more details.
