Not too long after LG announced its latest clamshell Android smartphone, Samsung also launched its very own – the Samsung Galaxy Folder. As always, the device is only available in South Korea, and will go on sale next week.
The Samsung Galaxy Folder comes with a 3.8” TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 800. While the display is touch-enabled, like most flip phones, there is a T9 keypad right beneath the display, along with shortcut keys and directional/select buttons above the keypad, so users can have the flexibility to choose to make selection via the screen or keypad.
On the insides, the Galaxy Folder is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and has 1.5GH of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD card up to 128GB. There is also an 8MP rear camera that sadly does not come with any flash, while the front is equipped with a 2MP shooter. Other specs include1,800mAh battery, has two different variants – 3G or 4G, and runs on the “latest version of Android”. Samsung did not mention the exact version, but it should most likely be Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Available in black or white, the 3G Samsung Galaxy Folder is priced at 297,000 Korean Won (about RM972), while the 4G LTE version has a retail price of 327,000Korean Won (about RM1,071).
