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.

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.

    Oh my, what was Samsung thinking, the return of the comeback, too much power wasted there..

    Sino ba ang mga target customers neto exactly? Mga rich old geezers?

    • luciii says:

      It does say that the phone is China Telecom-exclusive.. The demand for this kind of phone could be high in China.. So it makes sense to give such a high price. Low supply, high demand.

    • rezzie says:

      wala na siguro maisip na ibang design ang samsung… parang ang weird.

    Not made of gold = not luxury

    My iPhone 5S Gold beats this piece of adulterated ShitSung Fagdroid dumbphone anytime of the day…LOL!

  4. Demer says:

    From my point of view, it would be a collectible of sorts. You wouldn’t exactly see someone buy it and use it as a daily driver. Maybe if it was made of gold(is it?), then it would be of some value.

  5. wew says:

    nung nakita ko ung “2.3 ghz” sabe ko ok na to at least reasonable ang presyo (thinking it is priced on abt 40 k based on the previous flip phones) pero nung nakita ko ung “70k” sabe ko shet grabe ang mahal.kahit cnu d maiisip na bilhin to hahahaha eh mas luxurious pa ang iphone eh.

    • secret says:

      sigurado ka kahit sino walang bibili? mga tulad mo baka hindi talaga bibili pero ung mga walang magawa sa pera siguradong bibili niyan. .

    • luna says:

      i wont invest to this kind of phone..seriously. there are better phones now a days like LG G2 and others.

  6. bobo says:

    Hahaha!! Wag masyadong mag magaling at google lang pala alam mo brod… Maka bobo wagas haha!! Eh ikaw tingin mo matalino ka na nyan lagay na yan?

  7. Sharingan_yeah says:

    To be fucking honest, okay na sana yung specs. The processor, ram, memory and everything. Pero putangina, 70k??? Tangina. Tangina! Tangina everywhere.

  8. pcso says:

    70k? kahit manalo pa ako sa lotto di ako bibili niyan

  9. roiji says:

    i really want an android fliphone… but this being 70k… ito na pinakamahal na samsung mobile device! mas mahal pa sa mga highend ATIV laptops nila! kalokohan!

  10. enlightened1 says:

    Nakakatawa naman yung ibang mga comments. Napaka-childish parang kahapon lang pinanganak.

    Sa mga namamahalan: hindi kayo ang target nyan.

    Pag bumili kayo ngayon nyan at naitago nyo nang matagal, say 30 years, baka milyon na presyo nyan.

    Naalala nyo yung mga political ads/jingle na nakakaimbyerna (assuming matalino kayo)? Obvious di ba na hindi kayo ang target nun dahil mga pang ‘simpletons’ lang yun dahil sila ang nakararami.

    Kanya kanyang target lang yan mga pre.

    • wew says:

      kahit 50 years hindi magiging ganun kamahal presyo nyan….magiging mahal lang siya dahil sa luma na siya..UN LANG actually sa tingin ko in 30 years tingin ko magiging mahal eh ung iPhone 2G dahil sa history nito at kung pano nito nabago ang mobile communication technology.

  11. The Truth says:

    Kung makareklamo kayo parang ginawa yan para sa inyo. Hindi yan para sa mga tambay kagaya nyo!

  12. rfc says:

    10,000 yuan is loose change for most people in china.

  13. luiz says:

    Just a suggestion: Try LG G2. It’s only around 30K then you can have the phone together with a free pocket photo already. :)

    • wew says:

      paid by LG, eh?

    • mj says:

      pangit lang sa G2 eh yung LG skin on top of Android software, “overcooked” ba. Nasobrahan sa customization. but overall, great device

    • Tedd says:

      That’s right mj. Totally agree with you. Pero overall still it’s a really good device. Kasi marami nga customization pero useful and effective naman.

  14. iAmYourFather says:

    “nag-vevertu” ka na ba samsung?

  15. wew says:

    honestly, mukha tong dummy phone na nabibili sa mga bangketa.

  16. Random says:

    This is aimed at the so called “Elite” chinese class who could care less about the price.

  17. ruth says:

    ms better talaga para xkin yung G2 and nexus 5

    • lesly says:

      tama ako meon na G2 grabe wlang pagsisisi n binili ko un astig tlaga,… tpos tagal p mlowbat gwa nung 3000mAh ung battery nia….

    • marian says:

      magkano ba yung G2? marami nga ako naririnig na maganda dw un ei…

    • Tedd says:

      marian, 29,900

      Pero inooffer rin siya ng globe under Yours at 1399. Postpaid plan 999 with 400 cashout/monthly for 24months.

      Maganda nga siya. Made it to the top 10 electronic products of 2013 by consumers report.

  18. boom007 says:

  19. Romeo says:
