Samsung Adding Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 to a Flip Phone

by Reads (1)

According to some new leaks from Chinese site Tenaa, Samsung’s foray into bringing back the flip phone was apparently well-received – at least, in Asia. The company is planning to update the concept with some pretty high-end specs that will make even the biggest Android spec hound take a second look.

While the dual displays – one in, one out – will remain at 800×480, that’s the only low-end line you’ll see. Powering the SM-W2014 will be a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 running at 2.3GHz along with 2GB of RAM and a 13MP camera. It’s very near the heart of a Galaxy Note 3 stuffed into a much smaller frame.

Like most of Samsung’s recent efforts, there’s also a memory card slot with support for up to 64GB microSD cards, and it’ll ship with Android 4.3.

It’s unlikely that we’ll see this phone outside of Asia – but it’s fun to think about just the same. Despite the screens’ relatively low resolution (even though an 800×480, 3.67-inch display is not too shabby), having the pair might give you the best of both worlds – Touchscreen candybar when you need it, and physical keys when you don’t. 

There’s no word yet on pricing.
