Samsung has introduced a new budget dual-SIM Android smartphone, the Galaxy Trend 3. The device has been launched in China, though the company has not revealed the pricing and availability details of the device. For now, there is also no word on the roll out of the device to other markets.

The Galaxy Trend 3 follows similar design language as company's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4. However, it features more basic hardware specifications.

It comes with dimensions 129.7x66.95x9.4mm and weighs 128 grams.

Samsung's Galaxy Trend 3 features a 1800mAh battery backing the device, and as of yet, the company has not released estimated battery life figures. A dual-SIM device, the Trend 3 has support for dual standby. Connectivity options on the device include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS/AGPS, Micro-USB and 3G. The device does not come with NFC or LTE support. The Trend 3 sports a 3-megapixel rear camera with no flash.

The new budget smartphone from Samsung will be available in three colour variants - Black, Powder Pink, and White. It will also feature preloaded apps, including Samsung's App store and ChatON instant messenger.

Recently, a new mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy Trend was listed on Samsung's India online store for Rs. 8,700. However, there were no details on the availability of the device, with the page only providing a 'Notify Me' option for consumers. So far, a Galaxy Trend 2 smartphone has not made an official appearance yet.
