Touch screens have brought electronics a long way and mobile phones, as well as tablets have reaped the majority of their benefits. We are slowly seeing touch screens make their way into our desktops, as well as find themselves in our daily lives with the likes of vending machines, ATM machines and so much more. As the technology becomes more readily available and ultimately affordable, we shall see touch screens in everything, but multiple touch screens in a smart phone is an idea that has yet to take off. A few manufacturers have taken a shot at the concept with the likes of the Kyocera Echo, the LG DoublePlay and even Fujitsu had a concept dual touch screen device, but it’s now Samsung’s turn.

Samsung has introduced some amazing concepts into the market place that surprisingly took off. A prime example would be the oversized smart phone craze that basically started with the Note. The company has unveiled their latest in awesome with the likes of the SCH-W2013. A dual touch screen flip phone that oozes awesome and Android. A similar design of the new W2013 appeared about a year ago and was called the SCH-W999. The device is a simple styled flip phone that carries a fully functional internal, and external touch screens. So what’s the difference? The new W999 is a smartphone! The W2013 is the latest variation of the design and was introduced by Samsung and Jackie Chan at a charity event and has priced itself outside of the average user costing you somewhere between ¥ 18,000 and ¥20,000 which translates into about $2,900 and $3,210 bucks. Still interested? It is important to point out that these prices are not official and mostly rumor at this point. If you are still interested, you can expect some pretty solid specs from the W2013. The SCH-2013 is an Android device at heart and runs a slightly dated version of the OS in version 4.0. The dual Super AMOLED touch screens measure in at 3.7 inches and offer up an 800×480 pixel resolution. Internally Android will get its go from the likes of a 1.4 GHz quad core processor that will be backed by 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and expandable microSD memory capabilities up to 64GB. It is also said to carry an 1850 mAh battery that should last a pretty long time. Around back of the new W2013 is an 8 mega pixel camera, as well as a 1.9 megapixel front facing shooter.
