Samsung launches world’s first flip phone with a Snapdragon 800 SoC

Samsung Flip Phone

Samsung and China Telecom have announced a new clamshell flip phone called the SCH-W2014 which comes with a top of the line hardware specs sheet. The smartphone was announced at the annual Heart Of The World charity concert in Nanjing, China. While it looks very familiar to the Galaxy Golden flip phone which launched recently, it’s far apart from the smartphone, at least in terms of internal hardware. The smartphone features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC which is a powerhouse in the segment. Additionally, the handset comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13MP camera sensor, dual SIM functionality, a 1,900 mAh battery, two 3.7 inch 480×800 AMOLED displays on the front and back with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

This should also mean that the handset is compatible with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. People in China who are interested in the smartphone will have to shell out in excess of 10,000 Chinese Yuan which is about $1642 in American currency. So Samsung is clearly charging a premium for this smartphone, which was expected after the extravagant pricing of the Galaxy Golden in most markets.
