With retro-style flip phones experiencing a resurgence in interest thanks in part to critically-acclaimed singer Adele's recent music video, Samsung is allegedly planning to incite a comeback of the iconic clam shell phone designs. Dubbed the SM-W2016, the device is rumored to be a dual-screen android phone with a classic flip phone design, according to The Guardian.
Though the phone's outer design screams early 2000s, the handset is rumored to boast nigh-flagship specs. The phone is said to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and is equipped with a 64-bit octa-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage.
The phone is further rumored to boast pretty good specs in the camera department, with a 16 MP main camera at the back and a 5 MP front-facing camera at the front, for those all-too-important selfies, reports The Daily Mail.
Looking at the specs and the handset's rumored design, it is almost as if the Korean tech giant has taken the company's flagship device, the Galaxy S6, and the iconic Motorola Razr and merged them together. Indeed, the device does seem like a love child of the two devices.
Samsung is not the first smartphone maker who is creating an Android phone with a clam shell device. Just recently, Samsung's Korean rival, LG, has released the LG Wine Smart, a smartphone with a 3.2 inch screen running Lollipop.
