Samsung has unveiled a new addition to the Galaxy range that teams a cutting-edge spec sheet with an exhumed form factor that was long thought to have been consigned to the tech graveyard.
Exclusive to China where the handset market is a very different beast to ours, the imaginatively named Samsung Galaxy SCH-W2013 features the kind of flip phone form factor and numeric keypad combo that was last regarded as a la mode back when the original Motorola RAZR kits walked the earth.
But under the bonnet, the Android-powered kit is every inch the modern smarthphone, thanks to a quad-core processor, dual-SIM support, 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, eight-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage and a front-facing secondary 1.9-megapixel snapper for video calls and self-portraits.
Interested? Hmm. Well you should probably know that there might be a few stumbling blocks between you and ownership of this smartphone curio. As well as the premium you’ll pay to get to China, there’s the small matter of the phone’s asking price. It’s going for the not inconsiderable sum of $3,000, which ought to rule out anyone but the most committed fan of superannuated smartphone design.
