Leading smartphone maker Samsung has launched the new Galaxy Note 5 dual in India.

"Samsung has always focused on driving innovation based on valuable customer insights.

The Dual SIM edition of the Galaxy Note5 complements today's consumers' lifestyles by seamlessly balancing their personal and professional lives," Manu Sharma, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 dual houses same specification as seen in the original model, which was released in September 2015. The only difference between the two is that the former houses two SIM slots, whereas the latter has one nano SIM slot. The rest of the specifications are the same in both the models.
