Samsung has recently announced the launch of a very interesting Android phone in China, the SCH-W999. Designed for folks who love things that come in pairs, this phone features dual 3.5″ Super AMOLED (480 x 800) displays, dual SIM slots, dual-mode connectivity (GSM and CDMA2000), and a Qualcomm MSM8660 1.2GHz dual-core processor (okay, the last one isn’t really a pair). What are missing would be dual cameras and perhaps, dual-boot capabilities (now we’re getting ahead of ourselves).
Instead, the SCH-W999 features regular keypad, a five-megapixel rear camera, Android 2.3 with TouchWiz, a HyperSkin back cover (like the Galaxy Nexus), Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi, WAPI, and GPS. No word on pricing or if the phone will reach our shores, but a device like this could probably help some folks make the transition from feature to smartphone. But with dual super AMOLED screens and a dual-core processor, don’t expect this phone to come cheap.
