Clamshell smartphone on Android

Many years ago, clamshell phones were a huge success. Remember, at least the notorious Motorola Razr, which everyone seems to have dreamed of. With the advent of smartphones, interest in clamshells has disappeared. But not for long – some companies decided to create clamshells based on Android smartphones. What does the market offer us today? Alas, the choice is small.

FREETEL Musashi

Extremely interesting device. Not only is this a clamshell based on the Android OS, but this device also has two screens! Interestingly, both screens, both internal and external, are the same. In fact, this is a unique device: you can use it as a regular smartphone, or you can use it as a clamshell phone when making calls. Very unusual. And not cheap. True, the latter can be attributed to most modern folding beds.
