Flip phones used to be a pretty popular form factor back during the days of the feature phone, but interestingly enough that form factor has decided to make its way into the smartphone era, with companies such as Sharp and Samsung releasing Android phones in said design. We guess there has to be a market for it for these companies to consider investing into such a product and you might have heard that Samsung had a flip phone in the works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset. Well the rumors have proven to be true as Samsung has announced the W2014, the world’s first flip phone that runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset under the hood.
The device will clocked at a speedy quad-core 2.3GHz and will come with 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, 32GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot for memory expansion, and a removable 1,900mAh battery. The W2014 will feature two displays, both of the 3.7” variety, but both with a rather disappointing resolution of 800×480. We’re not sure how many of you guys need an Android flip phone but if you do, the Samsung W2014 will set you back a cool $1,640. Ouch.
