For international travelers, if you’re looking for a smartphone with dual-SIM capabilities (one for your home country, and the other for the country you’re visiting), Samsung may have the solution for you with their new Samsung Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS mobile phones, with the difference being that the latter device will feature dual-SIM capabilities, but other than that it appears that both phones remain the same as far as hardware is concerned.

Both the Star 3 and Star 3 DUOS feature a 3” QVGA display along with a 3MP rear-facing camera. It will also feature a microSD card slot for memory expansion and will run on the latest Samsung TouchWiz UI and does not appear to be powered by Android. These appear to be rather basic phones and will provide connectivity up to EDGE with both 3G and GPS apparently missing from the picture.

However we’re guessing that EDGE should be fast enough for users to utilize Samsung’s very own ChatON service. Both devices are expected to see a launch by the end of the month starting with Russia and then followed by the rest of the world. No word on how much either the Star 3 or Star 3 DUOS will cost.
