If you thought the age of flip phones was over, you were wrong. Samsung has already announced the release of two such devices. About a month ago, it confirmed the incoming of Samsung Galaxy Folder 2. Last week, the official news regarding another folding smartphone arrived. Leader 8, or SM-G9298 has been officially confirmed for China, but there’s no news regarding its availability in other parts of the world.
A new Samsung flip phone
Samsung was quite generous with details regarding the new flip phone, as its specifications are already here. Leader 8 should come with a strong case made of aluminum alloy, and a full HD display of 4.2 inches both on the outside and on the inside of the fold.
Also, don’t think that a flip phone should be less powerful than other smartphones. It will bring the winning combo of 4GB RAM and a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. The internal storage is also generous, namely 64GB, and also supports microSD. Also, the flip phone has both a rear and a front camera of 12MP and 5MP respectively.
Where will the phone be available?
The flip phone is compact, and it weighs only 235 grams. Also, it features a 2,300mAh battery, and can be charged both through a cable and wirelessly. Since it’s a Samsung device, it also comes with support for special features, such as S Voice, Secure Folder, or Samsung Pay.
At first, the Samsung flip phone will be available only on the Chinese market. Now, the company has to announce when it will be released and at what price, but many customers are curious if it will bring the device on other markets as well.
Samsung is on a roll of releasing flip phones, as it has already launched Galaxy Folder 2. This one also sports a series of impressive features, and might indicate the flip phone is not actually gone.
