Samsung W2014 Is Yet Another Android Flip-Phone, But The First To Feature Snapdragon 800

Samsung, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer, has become unstoppable when it comes launching flip phones. Bringing back the old as well as the gold, the company has launched Samsung W2014, an Android flip-phone - a third smartphone in a row this year. Unveiled in partnership with China Telecom, the Samsung W2014 gets its power from a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM and thus makes it the world's first to feature such a fast and powerful CPU. The phone features two 3.7-inch Super AMOLED touch-screen displays with a resolution of 480x800 pixels. Along with dual screens, along comes support for Dual-SIM. On board are two cameras - a 13-megapixel on the rear and a 2-megapixel one on the front.

The Samsung W2014 features 32GB inbuilt storage with additional 64GB expandable storage support and a 1900mAh removable battery. Running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the W2014 model looks and is pretty light-weight. The Samsung W2014 specs list the weight as 173.5g, thus making this phone the lightest model in the "Heart Of The World" clamshell family since the W699.

The earlier two flip phones from Samsung that we covered this year were - Samsung Galaxy Golden Flip Phone Comes To Indians Willing To Pay Rs. 51,900 and the Samsung W789 Hennessy Android Flip Phone Launch Happens In China. The Galaxy Golden features a gold-plated body and a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor that works with about 1.5 GB of memory (RAM). It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is likely to receive Android Kit-Kat in coming days. The device boasts of two 3.7" SAMOLED displays along with a 3x4 physical keyboard. The phone has an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.9 MP front camera.

Coming to the Hennessy model - Samsung W789 features two screens - external and internal - of 3.3-inch each, with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. It runs on Android 4.1 OS and has a 5 megapixel camera. Being powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, the phone supports a microSD card and lets you expand its memory. The Samsung W789 supports both CDMA and GSM bands. The phone is packed with a 1,500 mAh battery. Other features include Bluetooth, USB 2.0, GPS, and WLAN. The phone will come pre-loaded with Samsung Apps, including its messaging service ChatON.


The price and availability of the Samsung W2014 still remain unknown, but we have good reasons to believe that it may cost more than CNÂ¥10,000 in China (approximately U.S. $1600+). And the price roughly converts to Rs. 101,048 in India. Though the W2014 doesn't look like something everyone would go running after, we have to wait and see how it works with the flip-phone lovers. How about you?
