Samsung just released a high end flip phone called the Samsung W2017 in China. They device is pretty spec’d out and it looks awesome but it is kinda pricey (rumors saying it will be priced over $3000). It’s highly unlikely this will have a worldwide launch so we doubt we’ll ever see this land in the Philippines via official stores.

If you’re interested, here are the technical specifications.

  1. What do I think? It’s too big to flip. Just like having 2 phones in one ear and you’ll look ridiculous. Flip phones, I think, are for smaller feature phones.
