NEC’s Medias W is a folding smartphone with two displays


Leave it to the Japanese to get all the coolest toys before everyone else. Aside from the announcement of the Optimus G Pro, customers of NTT DoCoMo will also be able to get their hands on a unique smartphone – NEC’s Medias W. the smartphone has two, 4.3-inch LCD displays that stores neatly into the device when not in use, effectively doubling your screen space when you need it. Each display has a resolution of 540 x 960, and the device has a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. It also sports an 8-megapixel camera and has 16GB of built-in storage which is expandable through a microSDHC slot. This particular device will be running Android 4.1 from the get-go, and will be able to utilize one or both displays for apps and whatnot. Japanese customers will be able to grab it once April rolls around, unfortunately no word yet on when everyone else will get their hands on it.
