Not many companies manufacture smart flip phones, but Samsung does. The company had introduced a number of flip phone smartphones to date, including the Galaxy Folder which was announced in July last year. The Galaxy Folder was a mid-range smartphone at best, it can even be said that it is an entry-level phone. In any case, it seems like its sales were not that bad considering Samsung seems to be ready to launch its successor, the Galaxy Folder 2, read on.
The Galaxy Folder 2 was certified by both the FCC and TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), but the phone also leaked a couple of times already, both its alleged promo materials and real life images popped up. Well, a new leak has just surfaced, and it gives us a great look at the device, while we also get to see the phone’s alleged retail packaging. If you take a look at the provided images, you’ll notice that we’re looking at the Gold color variant of the device, and it is possible that will be the only variant Samsung will offer. The phone resembles last year’s model in terms of the design, that’s for sure, though this handset seems to be made out of metal entirely. Take this info with a grain of salt though, as we’re not sure, but it sure looks like it based on the images, at least as far as its outer shell is considered.
The Galaxy Folder 2 will sport a 3.8-inch 800 x 480 display, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The phone will be fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 64-bit SoC, which is a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which ships with the Adreno 308 GPU. The 8-megapixel shooter will be placed on the back of the Galaxy Folder 2, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be available up front. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will come out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Samsung’s custom user interface, as per usual. The 1,950mAh battery will also be included here, and if the source’s information is to be believed, the phone will cost $285. We still don’t know in which markets will the Galaxy Folder 2 going to be available, but considering it was certified by the FCC already, it’s safe to say that it will make its way to the States, along with Korea and China, of course.
