It seems Samsung is on a launching spree when it comes to flip phones. The South Korean major has unveiled its third Android flip phone this year, the W2014. The Samsung W2014
flip phone has been launched in partnership with China Telecom. However, the company has not revealed the pricing and availability details of the device, yet.
The Samsung W2014 flip phone has a similar build to other Samsung flip phones, the W789 and the Galaxy Golden launched earlier this year. Although, the major difference among the three is that the Samsung W2014 is powered by a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM, which makes it the fastest flip phone launched by Samsung, yet.
