Flip phone uses dual-core 2.3GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera
A flip phone from Samsung has been spotted in a filing with a Chinese regulator. Images of the SM-W2014 on the TENNA website shows a smartphone that is relatively similar to the dual-screen Hennessy flip phoneand Galaxy Golden released in August, except that this time it opts for a single 3.67-inch display with a higher resolution of 640x480.
Inside the W2014 is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz with 2GB of RAM, running on Android Jelly Bean, reports The Droid Guy. The 173-gram (6.1 ounces) smartphone also has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing version, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
Despite appearing on a regulator's website and expected to launch in China and other nearby regions in the coming months, it is unlikely for the W2014 to make its way to the US or Europe. Based on the price of the Galaxy Golden, it is likely to sell for around $700.
