Rumor has it that Samsung is working on a flip phone, a form factor that has long been abandoned by most manufacturers. Yet for some reason, Samsung is apparently trying to stage a comeback for this form factor through the Samsung Galaxy Folder smartphone, which is said to run on Android. We’ve heard rumors about this device in the past as well, today we get to see purported renders of the Korean manufacturer’s flip phone.
There’s also chatter of a Samsung Galaxy Golden smartphone, which is also apparently a flip phone, though its not known for sure if this one particular device is currently known by two different monikers. Samsung hasn’t made an official announcement yet, it hasn’t even hinted if such a smartphone will be launched soon. The Galaxy Folder reportedly has a 1.2GHz quadcore processor, a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and support for CDMA and GSM networks. China Telecom is said launch this device in the near future. It can’t be said for sure if this device will ever make it to Europe and North America, we’ll just have to wait and see.
