You can trust Samsung to take the road less traveled, as it is probably one of the very few companies who are still putting their trust in flip phones and the latest contender goes by the model number of SM-W2014. The South Korean company has a couple of other similar gadgets to its credit, the W789 Hennessey and Galaxy Golden.
Apparently, people in Asia are liking the retro-styled smartphones, which is why Samsung is going on doling out clamshell phones one after the other. The Droid Guy took note of the gadget seen on Ameblo and that has already received the green signal from Tenna, which happens to be the FCC-equivalent in China.
So what can you expect the Samsung flip phone to tag along? First of all, dual Super AMOLED screens, but considering that it is a clamshell device, there’s no scope for a huge display. Thus, users will have to make do with a 3.67-inch screen and its resolution is said to be 800 x 480 pixels. Within the confines of the retro exterior, prospective customers can expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor sprinting at 2.3GHz as well as 2GB of RAM.
And the device doesn’t miss out on the latest Android platform either, as rumor has it that it will rock Jelly Bean 4.3. Apart from the common attributes like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, you can look forward to a 13MP camera and a 2MP secondary snapper as well. It measures 116.85 x 59.4 x 15.79 millimeters and tips the scales at around 173 grams.
Whether the Samsung SM-W2014 will be unveiled in any other country apart from China and Korea or not, is not known as of now.
