Samsung Reveal new Android flip format handset

A little while ago we showed a new Android powered Samsung flip phone that was destined for the Chinese market.

Well, Samsung have quite strongly upped the ante with the launch of a brand new quad core flip phone powered by Android – again destined for the Chinese market only.

The specs are as follows:

  • Clamshell Design
  • Dual 3.7-inch Super AMOLED
  • Quad-Core 1.4GHz Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB Storage
  • GSM 900/1,800/1,900MHz
  • CDMA 800/1,900MHz
  • Android 4.0
  • 800×480 WVGA Resolution
  • Bluetooth 4
  • Wi-Fi Capable
  • 8MP Camera
  • 1.9MP Front-Facing Camera
  • 195g
  • Size 117.8 x 60 x 16.83 mm

Not a bad device until the price is revealed……$3000!

There are no plans to release the device outside of the Chinese market and at the price the sales volumes would be severely limited.

Running Android 4.0 ICS, the device also comes with Touchwiz albeit with adaptations for the flip format.

So, if you have plenty of spare cash and contacts in China you could bag yourself something that would be pretty much unique in the  western world!
