Leaked Samsung Hennessy is a dual-screen, quad-core Android smartphone
The mind-numbingly extensive Galaxy line apparently doesn't pander to all tastes, for just two weeks ago we got wind of a new Samsung smartphone the type of which we thought has gone down the path of the Dodo. A Samsung flip-phone. Today, the year 2013. Crazy, right? 

Not for Sammy. And if you think about it, the South Korean giant is probably one of few smartphone manufacturers who can allow themselves the luxury of experimenting with different ideas.

So, welcome the Samsung Hennesy, a dual 3.3-inch screened phone running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Or so the intel hailing from Chinese Blog of Mobile claims. Among the rest of the specs that we know so far are the alleged 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a gig of RAM and a frugal 1GB of internal space. While a front-facing camera has been omitted, on the rear resides a 5MP CMOS shooter, or so we're told. The real disappointment comes from the low resolution on both of the screens – at 320x480 it's a kind of a let down for an otherwise decent, if odd, device.

Such a unique device couldn't have possibly not rang a bell, though. We're immediately reminded of the Samsung SCH-W999 from a few years ago. The Samsung Hennessy is, quite possibly, the successor of the SCH-W999, which could mean that availability will probably be limited to China and South Korea.

The saddest part of this phone is, there is no free whiskey.

You're implying that Hennessy is a whiskey. It's a cognac.

Too much garbage from Samsung recently, reminds me 7 years back when they introduced a slide $hitty phone with a transparent screen.

Innovation, you're doing it WRONG!

I am excited to switch to the next iPhone.

Keyboard. Keyboard. Key-board. Q. W. E. R. T. Y. Keyboard.

Come on, Samsung, stop messing around with a clone of the failed Kyochera Echo and build a worthy successor to the Epic/Stratosphere line.

Most keyboards are QWERTY. The appropriate term is "physical keyboard". That being said, I agree. My first smartphone was the T-Mobile G2 which had a good physical keyboard. I never used it because I quickly fell in love with Swype, but I definitely think the market is out there. I know so many people who swear by their G2/Epic/Droid/Stratosphere keyboard. Android phones with physical keyboards should make a comeback & you shouldn't have to settle for mediocre specs to get one. Android's all about choice, right?

True, most keyboards are QWERTY, but there are other configurations (AZERTY, DVORAK, QWERTZ, etc). With my luck, I'd get the world's first AZERTY slider!

Samsung W999 was announced almost 2 years ago. This looks identical to it.

They should have gone for a flip phone that becomes a phablet when opened. Or maybe this is the beginning.
