Samsung finally unveils Hennessy flip phone in China

Smartphone SCH W789 comes with two 3.3-inch touchscreen displays and runs Android 4.1.

After several weeks worth of rumors and image leaks, Samsung has unveiled its Hennessy flip phone.

Samsung in China on Wednesday announced the Hennessy SCH W789. For now, it appears that the handset will only be available in the Chinese market. As expected, the handset has a flip-phone design and comes with two 3.3-inch touchscreen displays -- one on the front and the other on the back. The smartphone runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. Its rear-facing camera sports 5MP.

As with most other Samsung smartphones in China, Hennessy comes with support for both CDMA and GSM, allowing customers to access any network in the country.

Samsung's latest launch comes a day after research firm Strategy Analytics revealed that the company was the top-selling smartphone maker in China during the second quarter. Samsung owned more than 19 percent of China's smartphone market.

Samsung hasn't said whether the Hennessy will make its way to other countries.
