Samsung’s clamshell “Hennessy” phone now listed on official website

A remnant of a time long past, Samsung’s “Hennessy” clamshell flip phone, press images of which were leaked yesterday, has now been officially listed on the manufacturer’s Chinese website. Oddly, the device is simply named W789, which indicates even Samsung was hard pressed to come up with a suitable name for the phone.

In terms of specs, the W789 fits in somewhere between the low-end and mid-range, with dual 3.3″ HVGA (320 x 480) displays, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB built-in storage and a microSD slot, dual SIM slots (CDMA + GSM), Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth connectivity, a 1,500mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
