Huawei launches dual-SIM Android smartphone

Huawei Deuce hits stores in Australia with an RRP of $249

Huawei has launched its first dual-SIM smartphone, the Huawei Deuce, in Australia. The handset has two SIM slots and 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen. It runs version 2.2 of Google's Android mobile platform, and has a microSD slot for expandable storage and a 3.2-megapixel rear camera.

“Huawei Deuce is the ideal choice for consumers wanting a smartphone that gives them the option of operating two SIM cards simultaneously, without draining their wallets,” Huawei Australia devices marketing director, Mark Treadwell, said in a statement.

“Allowing you to switch between numbers on one sleek handset, or take advantage of different plans, the Huawei Deuce offers exceptional choice and makes staying touch with family, friends and colleagues easy and convenient.”

Earlier this year, the Chinese company launched the 3.5-inch Huawei Sonic through Woolworths supermarkets, with an RRP of $248.

The Huawei Deuce is available through Allphones, Dick Smith, and Harvey Norman with an RRP of $249
