Samsung officially confirmed the rumored “Hennessy” flip phone today, lighting up a new Chinese webpage to promote the W789, its official name. The Android device was first leaked yesterday by SammyHub, revealing two touch-screens, capacitive buttons on the front and a physical alphanumeric keypad on the inside. Now, however, we have the full specs for the device, but before you get excited remember that the Hennessy probably won’t be sold outside of China.

The Samsung W789 actually boasts some pretty good specs. Despite its tiny 3.3-inch 320 x 480-pixel displays, the flip phone comes equipped with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 1,500mAh battery, a microSD slot, a 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Earlier this month, photos of another Samsung flip phone called the Galaxy Folder leaked online, depicting a similar design to the W789 but with slightly bigger 3.7-inch displays. The device was also rumored to come equipped with a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, an 1,820mAh battery, LTE support and Android 4.2.2. The question now, is whether the Galaxy Folder was a earlier version of the W789 or a different device altogether.
