Samsung views the market of QWERTY models as dynamic, but doesn't try to be the leader in this segment. The Korean manufacturer was not popular here before. On the other hand, its dominance in dual SIM niche courtesy of DUOS series enabled the company to offer different models in this segment, so the announcement of an accessible QWERTY phone is a move to provide another handset in its favorite niche.
DUOS lite means that 2 SIM cards are supported in the following way: the model works with 2 cards simultaneously, but during the call only one card remains active. If somebody calls another number of yours it will be unavailable. This inexpensive solution uses a ST-Ericsson chip.
The model is a typical QWERTY candybar with chrome like ornament on edges and black matte plastic. The dimensions are 109.5 x 60 x 12.3 mm with the weight of 95 g. It can be comfortably carried in a pocket of a shirt or trousers.
