Samsung’s new Galaxy S Duos 2 has gone up for sale on the official e-store for Rs 10,999. Last week, the budget phone made a first appearance on the store and now you can buy it.

The S Duos 2 replaces the Galaxy S Duos, launched late last year. The only real difference the clock speed of the processor; the S Duos has a slower 1GHz CPU. The new S Duos also sports a 4-inch display, but is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. In terms of specifications, not much else has changed from its predecessor.

The smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has 768MB of RAM. Samsung will be offering the S Duos 2 in black and white colour options. There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a VGA front shooter. The phone follows the same design language that has been seen on countless Samsung midrangers and entry-level handsets. One good thing is the microSD slot takes in cards up to 64GB in size.

Here's a quick look at the key specifications:

  • 4-inch TFT display with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution
  • 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • GPS with A-GPS
  • 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front camera
  • 4GB onboard storage, expandable up to 64GB via microSD card slot

The S Duos 2 will have a 1500mAh battery that Samsung says is good for 8 hours of talk time and 280 hours of standby time.
