Samsung SCH-W999 has two cores, two SIMS and two displays

Samsung SCH-W999 has two cores, two SIMS and two displaysWe’ve met a fair few strange devices this year, including the Asus PadFone (smartphone or tablet?), and Motorola’s Android-based TV remote tablet thingy – the Corvair. What the…?

Not to be outdone, Samsung has lifted the lid on the SCH-W999, which is dual-core and dual SIM, and – in keeping with the dual theme – has not one but two displays.

The clamshell Samsung SCH-W999 has two back-to-back 3.5in Super AMOLED displays with 480x800 resolution. Just to be clear, that’s the same size as a bloomin’ iPhone, and the displays are paired with a numeric keypad, so it’s pretty freakin’ big when fully extended (that’s what she said).

Other specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay, a 5MP camera, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

There’s no word on price just yet, though Engadget notes that the Samsung SCH-W999’s predecessor weighed in at around £900. Cripes. It’s expected to touch down on China Telecom in space year 2012AD, and will be targeted primarily at business types.

In the meantime, you can check out this lovely SCH-W999 page from Samsung. Unfortunately our Korean’s a little rusty. Maybe we should oil him! Sorry, I'll leave now.

I love it. Reminds me of some of the mad swivel display phones Samsung sold (in Asia) a few years back, before everyone created phones that were just screens.

Does it include a battery to roll behind you? I would expect everlasting battery life for a business phone.

That page is in Chinese - not Korean and it's a GSM phone so it's not going to be sold in Korea (unless they make a CDMA version).
