Gone are those days when there used to be a flip-phones and sliders. But it seems Samsung is having some nostalgic innovations as they have a been reported to come with an old flip design handset soon by August this year.
Korea publication called ddaily has posted the news saying that the Android powered flip-phone will be called the Samsung Galaxy Folder.
Talking about the specs the upcoming flip-phone is said to feature a 480 x 800 WVGA display and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, along with LTE. The handset is reportedly said to ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
The phone will sport an old-fashioned alpha numeric keypad. However, it's not clear if the Samsung Galaxy Folder will combine a touch screen with the physical keypad, or abandon touch-based input completely.
There are in fact two model numbers mentioned viz SHV-E400S and SHV-E400K. So there could be two variants of the phone. The two models could possible mean that it could come with an LTE and non-LTE variant.
Reportedly, the company is said to first introduce the device in its home market in South Korea. The device is further said to range in the low end price category.
The DDaily quotes a Samsung Electronics official saying that the Samsung Galaxy Folder will be released in August and would also support LTE.
So far Samsung has got almost all sorts of handset in their pocket already and if guesses are allowed, it must have been now targeting the older generation. However, there are no informations regarding other specs and features are still not known.
