Yesterday we learned that Samsung is developing a second Android-based dual-screen flip phone called the Hennessy, and as with the Galaxy Folder, Samsung wasted no time in launching the device after the rumors began to spread. This morning, Samsung confirmed the existence of the new flip-phone when it officially announced the Hennessy.




Much like its Galaxy Folder sibling, the Hennessy features dual screens with a full keypad below and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Each screen is a 3.3-inch touch-compatible 480x320 LCD, which are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. A five-megapixel camera is on hand to capture memories as they happen, while a 1500mAh battery keeps things up and running for quite some time. Storage is handled via a microSD card slot and the UI appears to be Samsung's TouchWiz.


Like the Galaxy Folder, the Hennessy features dual-SIM slots for GSM and CDMA networks. This new folder will only be available in Asian markets and at the moment no pricing or availability information has been released. Stay tuned to TweakTown for full coverage of all of Samsung's new devices.
