Samsung Galaxy Golden 2 is a pretty powerful clamshell

Apparently, the phone did quite well, after being released last year, as a recent user guide leak shows that Samsung will be launching a successor – the Galaxy Golden 2.
It's an Android 4.4 powered handset and sports 2 screens – one on the outer shell, one tucked inside, against the keypad – and both of them sport 4.6” displays with 1280 x 768 resolutions. The SoC under the hood is a Snapdragon 801, running a quad-core Krait 400 at 2.5 GHz, coupled with the Adreno 330 GPU, and 2 GB RAM. The device also does not disappoint in the camera department – its main snapper has a 16 MP sensor and is capable of 2160p 4K video capture, while the front-facer has a more modest 2 MP one. No info on internal storage or battery capacity yet.
The phone has two microSIM card slots and will be launching in China, via carrier China Telecom. It is unknown, whether Samsung plans to bring it to its home country, though, seeing as the original Galaxy Golden was first launched in Korea – we believe it's safe to assume that it would.
So there you go – a powerful clamshell phone, running Android 4.4. Would you be interested in such a device if it ever crossed into the western hemisphere?

Because people have different needs. My cousin got it because he felt it looks awesome, he has an iPhone 5s next to it (he has always been an iPhone user) and he wouldn't ditch one of them for the other.

Man, there's just something about a flip phone that makes me happy. I remember back in the day (I'm 23 turning 24 on Halloween) when I had the LG VX7000 in a slick, soft touch blue with a swivel camera. Look it up, man. That phone was awesome. Those LG flips could do everything way back when.
