Anyone being happy with such HUGE numeric keypad won't need two screens anyway.
Why didn't they go with qwerty? It's a mystery for me...
Umz, 21 Aug 2013Is he wearing watches on both hands ?Yes, he does. What was he thinking at home before he went to his office??
Great point - i think he wanted to show his watch more than the phone...crazy guy ! hahahhahahaha
I normally use 7 phones (some dual-SIM...well don't carry them all at same time ;) =different carriers-countries I travel )so this one has very refreshing design,reminds me some fantastic Sharps I had, hope they make one dual SIM! will buy it for sure!

Please add free wireless headset, i cant pull out this large flipped phone to receive incoming call.
Let's just hope it's not one of those products that dooms a segment, due to poor implementation.
A flipphone with numpad and directional keys are a great idea. And many people would still type faster with hardware T9 system than they do on onscreen qwerty keyboard, if the keys are any good.
But to make use of the advantages of beeing a flipphone, it really can't pack that big of a display. It should probably only be max 3.3" with thin bezels, or even smaller (thus probably lower resolution than 720p, but it should still have high DPI in the range of 300 or more).
And it should definately not pack two big touchscren, that just makes the device thick, and gives you no incitament to ever flip open the phone. Even if displays could be made superthin. The only real solution where a big outer display would make sense for a flip phone is if its the same display, only made trasparent, with perhaps some thin layer glass or plastig on either side to shade out the background making it feel non transparent.
The outer display should be about 1.5" and possibly touch. It should feature some feedack, like notifications, and have acess to some toggle switches. It would be nice if it was an OLED, so that it could show the clock and notification symbols all the time. It should mainly be read only, with only some scrolling, toggle switches and music playback commands, much like a smartwatch (it could probably use the same API).
It should pack a good enough camera, but sine the most practical placement is in the lid, it has to have pretty small sensor (so something like the HTC One's ultrapixel solution good be a good idea).
(camera in the buttom section, could make much sense if camera experience is what you are after, but then it should really either use the transparent display solution I've mentioned above, of a flip and twist solution, to only one big display).
Given the smaller size and lower resolution of the display, it shouldn't have to pack that much punch in CPU/GPU department, so the battery wouldn't have to be terribly big, but the intended target group (those not in need for big high resolution displays), will likely appriciate longer batterylife than found on most smartphones of today. It should also not be a superslimmed down phone, and rather pack a decent keypad and not the "laser"-cut Motorola Razr esque kind.
And it should come in a fair amount of colors, if the outer shell is not metal of some kind (but still Nokia managed to do great colouring of aluminium).
Black, White, Red, Brown, are nice ones, and perhaps a retro ispired silver one to flirt with the fliphones from the past.

1.7 Ghz dual core processor= $20
Speakers and mics= $2... moreWRONG!!!!
2 3.7" screen= $30
1.7 Ghz dual core processor= $15
Speakers and mics= $20
Phone body= $20
Taxes per phone= $10
Total manufacturing cost of this phone= $177
"SAMSUNG" logo = $120
Total Price before mark-up = $297
Retailer Mark-up = $50 - $100
Total Probable Price = $347/$349.9 up-to $397/$399.99
this calculation is just a guess...
and SAMSUNG just priced it $700 sh1t
frh, 21 Aug 2013Other companies: We will put 2 cameras, one in front and one in the back for customer's conven... moreThen they will have a dual battery phone. One for the outer screen and another for inner screen!
Silence is golden...wahahahhahaha..wtf..a keypad for those non-touch screen users
