This new smartphone features a flip form-factor, boasting both a touchscreen display and the traditional alpha-numeric keypad. Sammy Hub has posted images of the clamshell phone bound for the Chinese market. The site also claims that the device will support both the TD-SCDMA and GSM networks.
Moreover, the site also listed some of the specs of the device including a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, a 13 megapixel , a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS/GLONASS and 1900mAh battery. The phone packs two 3.7-inch Super AMOLED WVGA displays ( 800 x 480).
However, there is no word on when this brand new flip phone will be launched and on the pricing of the phone.
