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.
