Last year, Samsung announced the launch of a high-end Android flip phone called Galaxy Folder 2. The device carries the model number SM-W2016 and comes with top-notch features making it the right blend of the past and present.
This device is basically for those who want to have a stylish flip phone without compromising on high-end features offered by a smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 was first released in China in fall 2016 and is slated to be released in the Korean market in the first half of this year. While the above-mentioned phone is yet to be made available in Korea, it is likely that the company is all set to launch the next-gen Android-based flip phone over there.
The upcoming Samsung flip phone running the Android OS is said to arrive with some features seen in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. One such feature that we can expect from the upcoming flip phone is the support for Samsung Pay. It is believed to be released as a special edition model. Talking about its availability, an official working with a Korean carrier is claimed to have revealed that the new flip phone is all set to be launched soon.
The device in question is believed to arrive with a fingerprint scanner and feature an IP rating too, making it resistant to dust and water. The device recently obtained the wireless charging certificate from Wireless Power Consortium too.
The next-gen Samsung Android flip phone is said to bear the model number SM-W2017. The phone is likely to feature dual 4.2-inch OLED displays and employ a Snapdragon 430 SoC under its hood. The upcoming flip phone could feature 64GB of default storage capacity as well. The imaging aspects are said to include a 12MP main snapper at its rear and a 5MP selfie camera at the front.
