Samsung S9402 Announced with Name Change

On the 27th of October we gave you the news of a leaked dual sim handset from Samsung named the S9402 DuoS. Today we can reveal that it’s official but it does have a name change.

The dual SIM Samsung S9402 will now be called the Samsung Ego and will pack a 2-inch AMOLED display, and a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with face recognition.

The Samsung S9402 Ego is made by a new exotic liquid metal alloy developed by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Compared to titanium this new material seems to be more than perfect for the body of a high-end gadget like the new Ego. It turns out that the liquid metal is 3 times stronger and 1.6 times more flexible. It withstands 1.8 times more pressure, has 3 times better vibration absorption and 100% lower thermal conductivity.

Everything else in the Samsung S9402 Ego is exclusive too – content, menu, ringtones were created especially for this model and won’t be found in any other of the company’s devices.

The Samsung S9402 Ego is expected to hit the shelves (Russia first) this month at an estimated price of 1400 euro (around 1800 US dollars) which is just a bit less than what Motorola expects to get for their Aura and a lot more than the price of a Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte.
