Samsung Hennessy (SCH-W789) flip phone to cost $800, makes for one of the worst deals ever

Samsung made a lot of people nostalgic while making others shake their heads in denial when they made the clamshell Hennessy smartphone official, but it looks like Samsung is taking the chance to charge an exorbitant fee for what can best be described as a phone in the lower mid-range segment – according to some Chinese websites, the Hennessy will cost a whopping 4999 Yuan, which amounts to $800.

Yep, $800 for a not-so-high-end quad-core processor, dual 3.3″ screens of a measly HVGA (320 x 480) resolution, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, 1,500mAh battery, and the not-so-latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. If that isn’t one of the worst deals to come out of the woodwork in recent times, I don’t know what is – actually, I’m not sure I want to know, and am certain you guys feel the same.

Well, unless any of you have a good reason why one would pay more than the Galaxy S4 for the Hennessy. Anyone?
