Flip phones, also called clamshell phones, are convenient for consumers who don't want to have to lock their keypad to prevent unwanted keypresses. They are also usually not as tall as candy bar phones and fit easily in your pockets. Rumor has it that clamshell phones were inspired by the Star Trek original series' Communicator.

The Otium Mini W2014 is a dual-screen flip phone perhaps modeled after Samsung's premium-class Android of the same name. It mixes its smartphone profile with the classic flip form factor, as its back-to-back 3-inch IPS screens (both with 800 x 480 resolutions) are assisted by a physical alpha-numeric keypad. Other features include a 4GB memory with 512GB worth of RAM, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 2-megapixel camera. This dual-SIM model is powered by a 1300mAh battery that promises up to 70 hours of mixed usage.
