Samsung launches new, Snapdragon 800 powered flip phone device at charity concert


Samsung and China Telecom revealed the latest flip phone the two companies are bringing to the Chinese market, the SCH-W2014. The dual-screen flip phone comes equipped with a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM to power Android 4.3 on the device. Samsung loads it up with 32GB of internal storage and the capability to expand that via microSD. The W2014 also has dual-SIM capability.

When the device was first spotted last month, the expected price was going to put it at around $700 USD. However, the latest reports suggest the W2014 will be selling for at least ¥10,000CNY (approximately $1,640 USD). China Telecom has not released an availability date and Samsung has not released information about other carriers or regions that may get the device, but it was spotted passing through the FCC, so there is a chance it may find its way to the U.S. market.

    I wonder if that icon in the notification tray is a little wi fi emblem with a question mark in the middle?! Kinda reminds me of the icon Samsung uses for the error ; “your Internet connection is unstable” which is constantly appearing in the notification panel of my 4th Galaxy Note 3. Shame on Samsung.

    Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM seems like serious overkill, considering that most people who still pine for the days of flip-phones are (if I had to guess) the least likely to be interested in taking advantage of all the features made available by that kind of hardware.
