As the high-end smartphone market quickly becomes saturated in the U.S. and Europe, tech manufacturers are now looking to the mid-range and low-end smartphone markets for growth. Though most mid-priced smartphones have been scaled-back versions of high-end devices, Samsung is now looking years into the past for a new form-factor.

A user manual for an clamshell-type Android flip-phone has been uncovered on Samsung’s website. The device would feature two 3.7-inch touch screens – one on the inside and one on the outside. It is also rumored to have a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU.

Samsung has already released a similar device in China. Its SCH-W2013 flip-phone was released in partnership with China Telecom and reportedly sold well.

This week purported images of Samsung’s new flip-phone have leaked onto the web courtesy Clien.net. The device appears to have a physical keyboard similar to those seen in pre-iphone devices, such as the Motorola Razr.
