It feels like it was just yesterday when flip phones were to us what phablets are today, sadly that ‘yesterday’ was a decade ago and almost no one dares making a flip phone nowadays, except for the South Koreans that is. The Samsung Galaxy Folder is no new leak, but thanks to RBMen who tracked down its manual online, we now have a better glimpse into what Samsung has planned for its Asian buyers.
The Samsung Galaxy Folder SHV-E400K is set to be an Asian-exclusive, Android powered flip phone with an ancient T9 keyboard that only feature phones dare feature. The Galaxy Folder’s manual shows off a product that only Samsung would seem fit for the masses. The Galaxy Folder is set to feature dual displays, although it remains unclear whether or not both will be touch displays. One of the displays on the Galaxy Folder is set to be a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Other than the screen, the Galaxy Folder will pack a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor as well as 2GB of RAM and support for LTE.
Other features as well as pricing and availability are still a no show, but knowing Samsung it shouldn’t be too long before the Galaxy Folder goes official, but whether it will go on sale outside of select Asian markets remain a mystery, a highly unlikely mystery.
