Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 flip phone goes official in China

Samsung Galaxy Folder 2

Did you fancy the Motorola Moto RAZR when it was released all those years back? Well, you’re not alone. People in China and Japan are still in love with clamshell style phones, and that’s why Samsung still releases at least one flip phone every year in those countries. Today, Samsung has launched a new mid-range clamshell smartphone in China. The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 features a 3.8-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera, and a quad-core camera.

The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 features a 3.8-inch TFT LCD display with a WVGA (800×480 pixels) resolution. It packs a 1.4GHz quad-core processor from an unspecified brand, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB storage. Coming to the camera department, there’s an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with f/1.9 aperture, and 1080p video recording. The front-facing camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels.

The Galaxy Folder 2 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company’s TouchWix UX on top of it. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE (with VoLTE calls), single-band Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS (with A-GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou), Bluetooth 4.2, a microUSB 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It comes packed with a 1,950mAh battery. Samsung hasn’t revealed the price and availability of the device yet.

If this phone’s style interests you but not its otherwise regular specifications and features, Samsung is also working on another clamshell smartphone with high-end specifications. Codenamed ‘Veyron’, the smartphone is expected to feature an Exynos 8890 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 12-megapixel dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus, and 4K video recording.
