Samsung SCH-W999 is a Dual-Screen, Dual-SIM Clamshell Android Phone Heading To China Telecom
By on December 5th, 2011

Samsung has announced a new wacky Android running handset headed to China, the SCH-W999. This dual-screen, flip phone packs in two 3.5-inch Super-AMOLED displays with WVGA (480×800) resolution. The handset is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm (S3), and comes with 1GB RAM.

The phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Sammy’s own TouchWiz UI jazzing up the stale Gingerbread’s UI a bit. Other usual features like GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, WAPI and a bunch of sensors. At the back of this dual-screen, clamshell phone is a 5MP camera.

Besides being a dual-screen phone, the phone is also a dual-SIM one with GSM and CDMA network support. The SCH-W999 is headed to China Telecom for an unknown price and will be released at an unknown date.

Looking at the way how some dual-screen Android running phones have failed in the past, I doubt Samsung will even think about releasing this handset outside of China.
