Samsung HennessySamsung has officially unveiled its new dual-screen flip-phone, the Hennessy. It’s not often that a flip-phone will garner consumer interest, but the Hennessy is hardly a typical handset.

According to Samsung’s Chinese website, the Hennessy will offer two 3.3-inch touch displays, one on either side of the top half of the phone, with each display boasting a 320 x 480 resolution. The flip device will run on Android 4.1 OS and will feature a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and a 1,500 mAh battery. Other specs include expandable memory via microSD, dual SIM support for both CDMA and GSM radios, and a 5MP rear-facing camera.

The outer display will house a trio of capacitive keys — the same ones that are currently found below displays of standard Android devices — providing full functionality and control from the outer display, while the interior will offer a full-numbered keypad. Samsung has also noted that the device will offer full GPS functionally over both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Samsung has yet to announce a release window or pricing for the Hennessy, and its currently unknown if the company has any plans of introducing the flip-phone to additional regions beyond China. However, considering that the device does offer GSM compatibility, it is possible that Samsung could decide to bring the powerful flip-phone to the United States.

With the Hennessy out in the open, the ground has been paved for the handset manufacturer to unveil its second dual-screen flip-phone, the Samsung Galaxy Folder, about which we have heard a number of rumors.
