If you’ve ever looked down at your phone and thought “man, I really miss clamshell phones”, Samsung has you covered. Not content to have an offering for every screen size imaginable, the company has now created a throwback device with two screens!
There is nothing impressive about the Hennessy, as both 3.27” screens are 320 x 480, hiding a 1.2GHz dual core processor, and 5MP camera. The SCH-W789 is a dual SIM device, and comes in “Luxury Gold”. That’s right — luxury.
It’s live on the Chinese Samsung site, but there is no expectation we’d see it anywhere else. A clamshell phone is a very niche product, and could be part of a broader effort for Samsung in the emerging Chinese market. We have heard about a Samsung clamshell device for South Korea, but we’re not sure if it’s the same as this.

Something about this phone’s design makes me think of The Borg.
Sorry, but this looks silly, the whole appeal of android is the touch screen ability and this just makes it look dumb, but that’s just my opinion.
I like it… and I recommended it to my mom… but it’s selling for a low, low price of 5,000 CNY (that’s more than $800 USD). WTF Samsung.
You’re kidding. $800?? Wow, they’ll probably sell about 5 of them at that price. What are they thinking?
I wish I was… but that’s what all the Chinese reports say. Granted, VAT is built into Chinese prices but still…
Samsung is taking innovation to a whole other level! But serioiusly who is going to buy this?
Why Hennessy? After the Cognac?
