Samsung W2014, the Snapdragon 800-powered flip phone
Looks like Samsung is serious about releasing luxury clamshell-type dual-screen smartphones as they have released another one but this time sporting a Snapdragon 800 CPU – the Samsung W2014.
Let’s do a recap, last August Samsung released two flip phones – the Hennessy and the ridiculously priced Galaxy Golden. Now we have the China Telecom-exclusive W2014 which is the successor to last year’s W2013 made popular in China.
The W2014 packs a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED WVGA (480 x 800) display or 252ppi, a 13 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, dual-SIM connectivity and 32GB of internal storage with microSD card support.
Powering the device is a Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 1,900mAh removable battery, and Android 4.3 Jellybean.
Now for the “luxury” part, this flip phone is expected to carry a price tag of more than 10,000 Chinese Yuan or at least Php70,000. You can go hating now.
