Clamshell phones used to be the coolest handsets on the block. That “snap” as it closes after the end of a call is still the most emotive way to hang up on someone. However, touchscreens are the the best way to interact with a phone these days.
What if you want the touch and the snap though? Surely that would be the best phone ever? Well, Samsung thought that too and have created the Galaxy Folder (or SHV-E400K/SHV-400S).
These leaked photos show a clamshell handset with two touchscreens (one on the front and one inside) and a T9 number pad.
Specs were also leaked:
- 3.7 inch Amoled displays with 800×480 resolution
- Snapdragon 400 Dual core 1.7Ghz
- 2GB RAM
- 1820mAh battery
- LTE Support
- Touch Screen
- Android 4.2.2
Pretty impressive, eh? I was expecting something about as powerful as a USB desk fan.
The device will be launched in the Korean market, but I can’t see it getting much further than that. It’s a shame, because I like unusual and quirky technology, but I can’t see it selling well in the UK.
Would you buy a dual touchscreen flip phone? Let us know in the comments section below.
