Samsung has launched a new Galaxy Note 5 with dual SIM functionality in India, allowing users to manage two numbers with one device. The device starts at Rs. 51,400 with 32GB of internal storage, while a 64GB model is coming soon.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 5 almost exactly the same as the original; it looks no different from the outside, and it’s packing the same 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization.

Sadly, it also runs the same Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software, which means you’ll have to wait for a Marshmallow upgrade just like existing Note 5 owners. We had expected the update to arrive this month, but there’s no sign of it just yet.

The only difference, then, is that this model takes two SIM cards as opposed to just one, making it ideal for those who have to juggle two numbers. That functionality will cost you Rs. 51,400 for 32GB of storage, but there’s no word on how much the 64GB model will cost just yet.

The dual SIM Galaxy Note 5 is available in black, silver, and gold, and ou can order it now from Samsung’s official online store.
