Samsung announces GT-B9120 – flip form factor and Android collide
One casualty of the smartphone revolution has been the flip phone. While that may be welcome by many, Samsung has announced a new Android powered device that will sport the old familiar flip form factor. Meet the GT-B9120.

Slated to hit the Chinese market the GT-B9120 is a dual screen Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset. Each screen is 3.5-inches with a 480x800 resolution. Inside the device is running a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 5-megapixel rear facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

Unfortunately there is no word on pricing and we don’t expect this to come stateside, but it is an interesting mashup of form factor and operating system.

But dual screen phones don't really sell very well .

Check out the lg double play or kyocera echo

Maybe not in America but I remember seeing quite a few dual screen (flip phone types) in places like Japan and Korea.

If samsung could have made it thinner and made a more rounded design then this phone would appeal to more than just fifty year old chinese men....I like it though...

They should've made it sorta like the old Nokia N93 but the screen rotates 180 degrees and the keys should be qwerty

Flip form factor, I miss thee so.

The hardware seems nice enough, I would certainly consider buying it.
