Do you remember the clamshell phones?  Nowadays, almost every company doesn’t produce them anymore. But Samsung just launched a clamshell device in China, where it seems it still works. The model name is SM-G9098 and was listed yesterday on Samsung’s Chinese website. It will have a traditional keypad and will be dual-SIM with a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED displays of WGA with a 480×800 resolution. One will be in the back and the other will be inside. The device is similar to the old Galaxy Golden from last year, just the design has been upgraded and some specs.

The other specs of the device are somewhere on the top of the line specs of 2013 Samsung devices. The processor will be a 2.3 GHz quad-core, probably a Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB of RAM. It will have two cameras: a 13 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. The battery will be a 1.900 mAh and will have a microSD card slot. The screenshots confirms that it won’t run on Android 4.4, but the specs doesn’t mention what software it will feature.

It seems that this device will be exclusively provided by China Mobile. The price is unknown yet and isn’t sure if it will be launched in other countries,also.
