Samsung to release yet another flip phone... with Snapdragon 800?

The level of vertical integration over at South Korean tech behemoth Samsung has allowed it to spawn an innumerable amount of devices of all kinds, covering a wide range of tastes. However, until recently, most of these have been decidedly mainstream devices, but spread over a wide range of price points. This changed a few months ago, as Sammy introduced... or rather, re-introduced a modern version of a concept that we had thought has gone the way of the Dodo – flip phones. And several of those, too.

These have been aimed at the Chinese market, and the newly certified SM-W2014 will apparently be no exception. According to rumors, the dual-screened device will come packing the mighty 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM. Not impressed? Perhaps the (confirmed) BSI 13MP rear/2MP front duo of cameras will change your mind. What's even more, the device has also been confirmed to come packing the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean iteration. The SM-W2014 weighs in at 173 grams and measures 116.85x59.4x15.79mm.

Of course, considering that it'll be packing two measly 3.67-inch 480x800 resolution AMOLED displays, it's rather confusing as to why Sammy would go for so much horsepower, which would simply feel wasted. On the other hand, those of you that remember the SCH-W2013, or the Jackie Chan flip phone, will know that practicality isn't really a concern for Sammy. Nor is price, for that matter – the SCH-W2013 cost about $3000.
