Samsung introducing dual-SIM card, dual screen clam-shell phone

Remember that flip-phone of yours, like the Motorola Razr? I’m sure you guys all had one flip-phone at some point in your life, and if you didn’t, well I guess then there’s your chance of owning an Android Samsung flip-phone.

That’s right, Samsung is introducing the SCH-W2013 a clam-shell smartphone but in China only. The phone will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be powered by a quad-core processor. The phone is loaded, and by that I mean, it comes with dual-SIM support, dual 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays and a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD. Add to this an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and an 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera.

The problem is that at a price range of 18,000 Yuan to 20,000 Yuan, which means around $3000 you can get a lot of other phones for that price; and by that I mean you can buy a total of 4 to 5 phones with similar specs for that price. So how can you justify this price? Actually, I can’t. Could it be because of the dual screen? But then even the Imerj doesn’t cost nearly that much. The dual-SIM cards? Other dual-SIM card phone are much more affordable.

Regardless, the SCH-W2013 will only be available in China for now via China Telecom. There’s no news regarding an international release, but I hope they revise their price if they do. And you, would you get an Android clamshell phone? Or is it “passé”? Let us know!
