Samsung Electronics is getting ready to launch its second Android clamshell smartphone attempt in China.
Samsung SCH-W999 is a follow-up of the SCH-W899 announced in 2010 (a 3.3-inch and Android Froyo). The new model SCH-W999 sports two WVGA OLED displays with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, allowing for both clamshell and candybar use mode. Other specifications of the Android clamshell device are the Bluetooth 3.0 and dual-band 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, a microSD slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB) and dual-cameras (no details on its pixels, maybe 5MP on the back and a 1.3 VGA on front).
While Samsung SCH-W999 is powered by Google’s Android operating system no details were revealed about its version (likely Gingerbread 2.3).
According to rumors, the SCH-W999 will be launched on the Chinese market soon via China Telecom carrier, like its predecessor, the SCH-W899.
