This is not one, but two high-end clamshell phones that Samsung was preparing. In addition to the SM-W2018, which we were talking about last week, Samsung unveiled in China yesterday the Leader 8, a very nice clamshell phone with two screens and a strong technical sheet.
So here is the Leader 8, or SM-G9298, Samsung’s new high-end clamshell phone. A very nice phone with two HD definition AMOLED screens, the first one being placed inside the device, when it is folded, and the second outside, in order to see notifications and take selfies. Like all phones of the genre, it also has a real numeric keypad and navigation keys that let it think it is well installed under Android.
More than a very nice design, the Leader 8 also benefits from a well-stocked technical sheet. The phone features a Snapdragon 821 – a high-end 2016 chip – as well as 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. It also has a 2300 mAh battery that should not be too much to power these two screens. Finally, Samsung has thought to integrate a 12 MP photo sensor on the back of the camera.
For now, the Leader 8 only has a product sheet on the Chinese site of Samsung. No one knows when it will come out and even less its price, same yuan. One thing is certain: this device will never leave the Chinese borders.
