Samsung has two new handsets headed for China. Taking its cues from the Galaxy S II LTE, the Samsung SCH-i929 is a dual-core smartphone clocked at 1.5GHz. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8660 powers the show. The phone features a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display at 480×800 resolution and 8MP camera. The main difference between the handset and the GS2 LTE is the lack of 4G support. The SCH-i929 carries GSM and CDMA2000 connectivity.

For the second device we get a form factor that isn’t all that common. The Samsung SCH-W999 picks up where the SCH-W899 left off and sports two 3.5-inch 480×800 AMOLED displays in a clamshell design. When flipped open the device resembles something more akin to a feature phone than any smartphone, but this is all Android. Similarly to the SCH-i929, the SCH-W999 carries an MSM8660 processor and GSM/CDMA2000 connectivity. Both handsets are destined for China Telecom.
