Another Android-powered Samsung flip phone leaks out
Dual-screen, quad-core device pictured for China Telecom
Flip phones are apparently still a thing, and so Samsung appears to be working on a couple of Android-powered clamshells for the Asian market. Last week brought the first leaked spy shots of the Korea-bound Samsung "Galaxy Folder," and today images of another similar device have leaked through Samsung fansite Sammy Hub.
The images reveal the Samsung W789 "Hennessy," a maroon red handset with bronze accents, capacitive keys, two screens and a single rear camera. Unlike the Galaxy Folder, we're looking at a fairly basic spec sheet -- a quad-core 1.2GHz processor (likely a Snapdragon 200), 1GB of RAM, 3.3-inch HVGA displays, a 5-megapixel camera, microSD support and Android 4.1-based software.
It's unlikely we'll see the W789 anywhere near Western markets, but it's an interesting addition to Samsung's endlessly-varied Android stable. The device is apparently headed to China Telecom in the near future, where it'll support both CDMA and GSM networks.
