Galaxy Note 7 will launch with dual SIM slots too

The Galaxy Note 7 phablet has gone official and we now know all there is to know about the device. A new tidbit about the smartphone has surfaced today; there is a version available that has dual SM cards. This is a big deal for people who want to be able to use multiple numbers with a single smartphone. This is also a feature that the Galaxy S7 edge lacks right out of the box.

If you want to use a second SIM in a Galaxy S7 edge, you have to do some hacking of your SIM cards. With the images that you can see in the gallery, it's clear that Samsung is offering a dual SIM version in at least some parts of the world. The dual SIM card tray was found in the images for the Note 7 for the global market, while the single SIM version was found in images for the UK version of the device.

If you want to know more about the Galaxy Note 7, we have already spent hands-on time with the device and you can see the video of that hands-on time below. If you aren't in the mood to watch a video, the Note 7 has a big 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED screen. It also has a 12MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and a 5MP front camera.

That big screen has curved tapered edges on each side and the smartphone supports HDR video streaming. The processor is a 64-bit octacore Snapdragon 820 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Expansion is via memory cards, but if you use a second SIM card, you will lose the memory card slot. Power comes from a 3500 mAh internal battery that supports fast wired and wireless charging. Pre-orders for the device are underway now.
