The rumour of a clamshell based Samsung Galaxy phone have firmed up even further – although it’s still possible, though not likely that this is a prototype that may not move ahead – with pics of the phone leaked to GSMInsider via an anonymous source.
According to SamMobile the specs of the phone were leaked a couple of days ago when the manual for the device surfaced. The phone will apparently come with dual WVGA (800×480) AMOLED screens, 1.7GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 400 CPU, Dual Cameras, 1,820mAh battery with Android 4.1.2 on-board. The phone will of course carry a variety of wireless connectivity – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, FM Radio and will come with LTE. There is a little bit of uncertainty with regards to how much RAM the phone will launch with, 2GB, 1.5GB or even 1GB, but we’ll find out at launch.
Call me crazy, or just longing for the days of the Sony CLIÉ but Samsung has my attention with this phone. It’s not the highest end specs but it’s not a low end spec either, it’s mostly form factor as well, if it were made of aluminium I’d totally give this a go. As always it depends on how it’s priced at release, so, your move Samsung.
Would you consider a Clamshell phone or are we done with the clamshell form factor?
