It appears to be a giant phone with "ultra sleek design", running Android (2.3) Gingerbread, and toting either a 4.3" or 4.5" WVGA sAMOLED2 screen. The guesses appear to be that the little s before AMOLED2 might mean SUPER, and it's unclear as to why two different screen sizes are listed on the same page.
