Pinnacle Africa has announced the imminent launch of its branded dual-SIM Windows phone – the Proline SP4.

The SP4 is set to become available on 30 January 2015, and will retail for R999. The phone features a 4-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon processor, and will run Windows Phone 8.1.

“What really sets the Proline SP4 apart from its competitors is its dual-SIM feature. Users are now free to choose how they use voice and data on their phone with the ability of having two SIMs active simultaneously and specifying which SIM is dedicated for cellular data usage,” said Pinnacle.

“It’s like having two phones in your pocket.”

Pinnacle Africa is also punting the phone’s battery life – claiming its 1,950mAh unit is the largest in its class.

“Battery life is probably the biggest criticism people have with smartphones, so we wanted to give people an extended battery as standard.”

From an aesthetic stand point, the phone will come with three covers – white, orange, and green – which are interchangeable.

The phone’s basic specifications are detailed in the table below.
