It seems like the Samsung company really enjoys alternating the forms of their Android smartphones. It is the third year that they release a flip-phone, and it might be heading to Asian stores only, just like previous models. So we must settle for the photos and, for those of you who liked this type of phones, let’s hope the company will launch a model world wide, in the future. The device is called Galaxy Folder and it might be an evolution of last year’s W2013. The handset is said to be a mid range clamshell smartphone. The model number for it is SHV-E400K/SHV-E400S.
Looking at the image below, you’ll notice a gold-like side trim and a camera key that replaces the W2013’s dual-SIM button. However, an update to Galaxy S 4-era software is the most visible change from previous models. According to our source, a Korean user manual was found containing a few specs, like a 3.7-inch AMOLED panel at 800 x 480 pixels or a Snapdragon 400 dual-core chip with 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy Folder is a dual display flip phone, which means that a display is present on both sides of the lid. The design is similar to the SCH-W2013 and SCH-W999.
Other specs of the Galaxy Folder include LTE support, touchscreen, a 1820mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as system operator. The user manual for the clamshell is at least 120 pages long, but since it’s in Korean, we have to wait for it to be translated in order to give you more information on the features. However, we do know that the device supports NFC and has the following dimensions: 59.5 mm wide by 118 mm tall by 15.8 mm thick at 179 grams. It actually sounds pretty good. I’m a little upset about not being able to get my hands on a Galaxy Folder in Europe.
