Rumours are spreading about the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February 2013. Speculations are that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will not make it to the Consumer Electronic Show or Mobile World Congress in January and February, respectively.
But low-end devices will probably appear in both events, which includes Galaxy Young Duos (GT-S6312), which will obviously support dual-SIM standby as the name suggests.
The device will appear at the Mobile World Congress, according to SamMobile and it will have two colors, white and blue, for the initial release. The specifications of Galaxy Young Duos include 3.14-inch QVGA display, 832MHz processor and 3.2MP camera.
Two other devices will be launched first quarter of 2013, and both will have Android 4.1 Jellybean, dual-core processors and 5-inch display.
