Samsung dual screen handset breaks cover ahead of November 8th unveiling
As speculation grows around what Android based phone Samsung is to grandly unveil during its well publicised phone launch next week, full specifications of the heavily rumoured Samsung Continuum have seemingly leaked hinting to its imminent arrival.
Images of the Continuum were first leaked last month with the dual AMOLED display touting handset now making an appearance on an online ‘holiday gift idea’ page of US network provider Verizon Wireless.
Joining the standard 3.4-inch Super AMOLED display on the mooted Android 2.1 device is a smaller 1.8-inch display that can reportedly display information such as incoming text messages, notifications, RSS feeds and stock prices without the handset’s primary display needing to be activated.
Although Samsung has yet to officially acknowledge any such handset, the leaked specs peg the expected device with a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities alongside 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity and 2GB of on-board memory further expanded by an 8GB pre-installed SD card.
Pricing and release date information remains a mystery at the moment. Stay tuned to T3.com and the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds for full coverage of Samsung’s November 8th Android handset unveiling and any further information on the Continuum.
