Engadget: Samsung’s SCH-W2013 is a quad-core, dual-screen flip phone, designed for Jackie Chan
It’s been almost a year since the ridiculously expensive SCH-W999 launched on China Telecom, so it’s about time for Samsung to come up with yet another dual-screen flip phone to lure folks with too much money. Launched in conjunction with a big charity concert (again) earlier today is the SCH-W2013, a 1.4GHz quad-core (likely an Exynos 4412) device with Android 4.0 and dual-3.7-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED touchscreens. On top of that there’s 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD expansion of up to 64GB, 1,850mAh of battery juice, an eight-megapixel main imager plus a whopping 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. As with many flagship devices on China Telecom, the W2013 comes with dual-SIM support: one for CDMA2000 800/1900 and the other for GSM 900/1800/1900. The damage? Well, there’s nothing official yet, but it’s believed to be somewhere between ¥18,000 ($2,900) and ¥20,000 ($3,210). After all, it ain’t cheap to hire Jackie Chan (and he also got given a W2013 at the concert).
