Samsung Hennessy Android flip phone now official

Samsung Hennessy Android flip phone now official
Considering that the existence of the dual-screened Android flip phone called the Samsung Hennessy had been known since last month, perhaps Wednesday morning's announcement making the phone official is not terribly earth shattering. The phone's outing came courtesy of the Samsung China website.  For those who like the form factor, there is no need to be ashamed any longer, even if your friends called you Mr. Jitterbug in honor of Sammy's flipper for the older generation.

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.
