Dual-SIM smartphones already exist in a wide variety of brands and forms here in the Philippines, but we hardly see ones with triple SIM (yes, triple!) capability. Meet the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios, perhaps the best choice for mobile users who just have to have three numbers. One of each from our three major mobile networks, maybe?
Obviously, it’s the simultaneous use of three SIM cards in one convenient device that would make a buyer grab a Samsung Galaxy Star Trios. The other hardware specifications are nothing worth remembering: single core Snapdragon S1 processor, QVGA screen resolution, and Adreno 200 GPU. On the plus side, there’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Color variants for the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios are black and white. Dimensions of the phone are quite similar to other small Samsung handsets, such as the Galaxy Y and Galaxy Pocket. Other specs include Active Sync, USB 2.0, 3.5mm audio jack, gravity sensor, and accelerometer.
Before you go asking at your nearest cellphone retailer, though, note that the Samsung Galaxy Star Trios is only available in Brazil. Hopefully, it will reach out to other markets, including our country. For the triple SIM feature, the asking price is approximately $165.
An alternative to the Trios is the LG Optimus L1 II Tri, but that’s also just sold in Brazil. Packed with specs similar to Trios, it costs significantly lower at around $127.
