Remember those clamshell or flip smartphones? Well, Samsung has just brought them back, but in a new package. The company has launched a premium dual-display clamshell smartphone (as seen in the picture below), named as W2016, in China. The phone features impressive specifications (pretty much like its flagship S6), and is encased in a chassis contoured with glass and metal. For now, the device has been launched in China, and Samsung has revealed no detail regarding its price and arrival in other regions.
