Samsung Champ WIFI Dual SIM : Samsung Champ DUOS E2652W - Price, Specs, Photos

A new Samsung Champ variant was recently released in India and in some emerging markets in Europe.

Check out Samsung Champ DUOS E2652W --

Samsung Champ DUOS looks almost exactly like its predecessor, the ultra-famous Samsung Champ -- albeit lacking the latter's tapered edges.

Don't make the mistake, though, of thinking that it hardly offers anything new. Samsung Champ DUOS actually comes with two features that most users would surely love to have on an entry-level handset -- Wifi connectivity and Dual SIM, Dual Standby support.

We've yet to hear word from Samsung Philippines on this phone's availability here. Off hand though, considering the success of Samsung Champ in our country, I think it's highly unlikely for this handset not to be released here.

Samsung Champ DUOS E2652W is now available in India with a suggested retail price of Rs 5,000 or roughly PhP 4,800. I'm expecting the phone to don a similar price tag when it arrives in the Philippines.

Stay tuned for updates. In the meantime, check out Samsung Champ Duos' complete specs --

  14. Yes. So far so good. They say it's Dual Standby. Receives both text and calls from both sims. If you received a text from sim 1, you can reply from your sim 2 just by clicking 1 button. Although if your switching from bar to a touch phone, you'll need to adjust a little to adapt to the touchscreen feature. =)
