Samsung has confirmed to V3 that its Galaxy S Duos smartphone will not be made available in the UK.
The firm first unveiled the device on 20 August and said that it would be "available from September starting in Europe and rolled out across other territories".
However, no word on the device's availability has been subsequently forthcoming and Samsung confirmed to V3 on Wednesday that the device would not be launched in the UK.
"The UK will not be ranging the Galaxy S Duos," a company representative said.
V3 asked Samsung for more information on why this was and if this had always been the intention but the firm declined to offer any more information at the time of publication.
The S Duos was touted as a dedicated business device with a 'Dual-Sim Always on' feature designed to allow users to receive calls on one SIM number while taking calls from the other.
This would help regular users travelers avoid issues relating to switching SIM cards while moving between countries and avoiding expensive roaming charges.
The S Duos is runs Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is powered by a fairly small 1GHz single-core processor.
Earlier this week the firm confirmed that the Note II smartphone would be released in the UK on 1 October. The device features a 5,55in screen and can be used with the firm's S-Pen device for note-taking and document editing.
