With high-speed mobile networks becoming the primary form of telecommunication, there is a growing need for mobile devices to access different networks around the world. Dual-SIM smartphones have filled this niche for sometime now, but being able to access two separate networks is just not enough for some.

Today, reports have surfaced that show off the world's first tri-SIM smartphones running MediaTek chips. The phones come from LG and GooPhone and can manage three separate phone lines at once without a noticeable drop in battery life thanks to MediaTek's Triple-SIM chip. The GooPhone X1+ features a 5-inch FWVGA display and a dual-core MT6572 processor, which puts it in the high side of low-end.

LG's just released L4 II boasts a rather small 3.8-inch 320 x 480 pixel HVGA display and an unnamed 1GHz processor. 4GB of storage is present along side 512MB of RAM. These specs put the LG L4 II into solid low-end territory, but with either phone being capable of utilizing three different networks simultaneously, we are sure that there are many who will look over the poor hardware specs for the tri-SIM capabilities.
