Samsung Hennessy Android flip phone now official
This flip phone is stuffed with Android 4.1 which means that the dual 3.3 inch screens with 320 x 480 resolution are responsive thanks to Project Butter. Google Now gives users the information they need when they need it, and actionable notifications allows users to read and respond to emails, view videos and more, right from their notifications shade. This is not your granny's flip phone. A quad-core 1.2GHz CPU is driving the unit while a 1500mAh battery keeps the lights on. Yes, Virginia, there is a microSD slot on board along with dual SIM slots.
There is no word on pricing or availability, but it seems that the Chinese will be the first to enjoy this trip back in time.

Commendable effort, I hope both the displays are mirrored.

It's the result of Samsung craftsmanship when not busy copying Apple. /s

Well, can't blame them for trying(and they're actually selling).. instead of recycling a 2years old heavy brick design, you know, like a certain company that is losing millions.

Last time I checked, selling is not synonymous with innovating.

Right now Samsung thinks whatever phone they make they will sell.. But to be honest no one will buy these.. It will come and go unnoticed.. Few of their fans will buy and that's all.. Anyways Nice try Samsung.. Just look at the results after few weeks post availability :)

I wonder if you can use the soft keyboard to type on the front of the phone without opening the actual phone.

A Nokia 6280 or N90-like design would've been cool

Samsung : we can make anything, just put quadcore bulls**t and android 4.1 and watch as fanboys go crazy

Samsung must be having lots of Quad core processors lying around. So they picked up some unused 320X480 screens from old phones and decided to make a new phone. Otherwise cant understand the purpose behind this phone. Samsung trolling big time.

Long story short: Yet another cheapo plastic garbage entry-level Lagdroid.

I can't imagine how long 1500mAH will keep dual screens powered...

People saying these wont sell are clueless. Flip phones are still being used by a large portion of the older population. I already know a few older people that will pick this up over a high end smartphone.

Actually I can see a lot of use for this.. Its more compact, also many like having buttons and either don't text or are used to texting via a 12 buttons. Yet they want a new smartphone. Small market sure.. but one only they would have.
