Samsung SCH-W2013 Jackie Chan Android flip phone launched in China

by: Chris SmithNovember 23, 2012

After looking at the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 2 flavor that was made official in China, it’s now time to check out another Android device launched in the region. The SCH-W2013 is an Android flip phone that’s made for/with Jackie Chan, but don’t expect it to be a Samsung flagship device that will soon go on sale in other markets.

Don’t get us wrong, it’s not an entry-level device either, as the handset sports dual 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays with 800 x 480 resolution, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD support, 8-megapixel camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, dual-SIM support, 1850mAh battery and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Engadget reports that the phone will cost from 18,000 to 20,000 Yuan, which translates to $2,900 to $3,120, respectively, and it may be a little too much for mobile device shoppers.

The SCH-W2013, which seems to lack a customer-friendly name, was launched at a charity concert earlier today and will be available from China Telecom in the region. As for an international release, we have no idea whether this particular Android handset will make it to other countries.

Would you buy one such Android flip phone?

    Sorry Jackie…I love your movies. But the Samsung phone you’re endorsing is…
    1. Way too over-priced. Even Apple doesn’t have a $2,900+ phone!
    2. Doesn’t have a killer must-have feature. For $2,900+, I’d have expected something *BIGGER, THINNER and FASTER* than the Galaxy Note 2.
    3. Isn’t even the *best* Samsung phone!
    4. Looks quite *UGLY*….IMHO

    Y’all being too critical. Its obviously a collector device made for true Jackie Chan fans. Its no different than $350 Jordan’s which are probably made for less than 50 (labor included I’m sure), or any other overpriced product with a celeb’s name on it.

    I like the idea of a flip android phone. I think I would rock it for a few months. Would I pay 3k? Yes but then I wouldn’t use it. I would try to get Mr. Chan to autograph it and slang it for 5!
