Samsung releases a new Android based flip-phone called the Galaxy Folder

Samsung Galaxy Folder

We saw LG’s Android based flip-phone a couple of days ago. Samsung has now introduced an Android based flip-phone of its own, known as the Galaxy Folder. This is the company’s third Android based flip-phone in recent memory after the two Galaxy Golden models were released by the Korean manufacturer over the past couple of years.

But unlike the Galaxy Golden, the Galaxy Folder will be more affordable for the customers. The handset has been priced at the South Korean equivalent of $250, which isn’t exactly a budget price tag, but a lot cheaper compared to the Galaxy Golden smartphones, which didn’t see the success that Samsung had initially hoped for.

The smartphone packs a 3.8 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, an 1,800 mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop running the show by default. The handset is only compatible with 3G networks and LTE modes are not supported, which is perhaps the only letdown here.
