We didn’t think that we would see Flip or Clamshell style phones come back into fashion but apparently Samsung think there is a market for them. So who are we to argue!
First up is the Galaxy Folder (SHV-E400K)
Will come on both KT and SKT and given the specifications, the phone looks to be a decent mid-ranger. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 2GB RAM.
The external and internal AMOLED displays will be 3.67-inches in size and support WVGA resolution. Additionally, the phone will have LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC with S Beam support, FM Radio, and have an 1820mAh battery.
Second Codenamed “Hennessy”, the Samsung SCH-W789
Rumoured to have a dual-screen setup, with both screens measuring 3.5 inches and sporting a rather average 320×480 HVGA resolution. The CPU is unnamed but is said to be a quad-core with a clock speed of 1.2GHz, making it possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200. It will have 1 GB of RAM and a 5 MP rear camera.
These specs are slightly different from an earlier leak which named the CPU as a Snapdragon S2. The information also mentioned a resolution of 800×480, which would have put the Hennessy closer to two other flip phones launched by Samsung in 2011 and 2012. The SCH-W789 will be running Android 4.1.2, which is probably decent given the hardware.
Those who have developed an aversion to flip phones probably need not worry, as this phone might be released only, or at least first, in China, just like Samsung’s SCH-W999 and SCH-W2013. There are no details as to the price, though it would probably be in the same range as the SCH-W999, which cost around $1,500. With a model that comes only in “Luxury Gold” color, it’s only fitting that it would have a luxurious price tag.
