Samsung dual-screen phones

Samsung has introduced two new flip-phone designs, the SCH-W570 and SPH-W5700. The phones are unusual for both relying on twin 2.2-inch LCDs; while a standard display is located on the inside, a screen of the same size is located on the outside, with its own touch-based interface used for accessing functions like video and music playback. This also enables use of the phones while closed.

Although details of the W5700 are uncertain, both phones should support 3G broadband through WCDMA, identified as tri-band HSDPA in the case of the W570. The latter is also known to have Bluetooth, a three-megapixel camera and DMB TV reception, as well as expansion support through a microSD slot. The phones are currently exclusive to South Korea.
