Samsung Hennesy Flip Phone with Android Officially Announced

It appears that the flip phone that Samsung was making is real, since the company just announced it. It’s dubbed Samsung W789 aka Hennessy and it’s a clamshell, as shown in the pics below. This may or may not be the same thing with the Galaxy Folder, leaked recently.

This flip phone packs two touchscreens, one inside and one outside and relies on a quad core CPU and dual SIM dual network support (CDMA and GSM). It’s very unlikely to see this unit outside of Asia, like ever. Specs include dual 3.3 inch 320 x 480 pixel touchscreens, a 1.2 GHz quad core CPU and a 5 MP camera.

There’s microSD card support, 1 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 1500 mAh battery. There’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the OS and China Telecom as the main carrier of the handset. Sadly, there’s no release date for this model and I have a feeling that the Galaxy Folder phone is something separate from this project.
