Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 First Flip Android Phone
More and more smartphones with elegant sleek design and sophisticated features are hitting the market. Samsung has chosen to differ from the trend and introduced the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 which features a retro look. The candy bar design has become a standard ever since the start of the touch phone revolution. The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 boasts a flip design similar to the old phone models with a physical alphanumeric keypad that gives a nostalgic feeling.
News from the media suggests the phone likely to have a touch-based screen in addition to the physical keys. There can also be a gesture-based navigation by swiping your finger on the physical keys.
It is rather early to assume Samsung’s commitment to bring back the “retro” style phones from the past. The amount of work put into it by Samsung we would consider it as an experiment rather than a full-blown commitment.
The International Business Times reported the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 to having promising specs. The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 is powered by a 1.4GHz processor and this will most likely be a single core processor. The Folder 2’s will have 2GB of RAM and run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The internal storage capacity of Folder2 will be 8 GB internal storage and MicroSD card slot to expand your existing storage with up to 128 GB. The phone sports an 8-megapixel main, 5-megapixel front camera which is still behind or at least on par most smartphones. The phone is powered by a removable 2,000mAh battery
The specs offered by Samsung’s Galaxy J3 are far better than Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 making this flip phone more of a novelty. As is the case with Samsung’s upcoming model Veyron which is yet under covers.
Considering all the factors we feel the Korean Tech giant needs to put more effort into the R&D of such devices. This will make the future “retro” style phones not just an eye candy but a fully functioning and cutting edge devices.
