Samsung Galaxy Golden Android flip phone official

Just one week after Samsung officially introduced its Android-powered SCH-W789 flip phone, the South Korean firm has announced a second, higher-end clamshell with Andy inside.

Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Golden (SHV-E400), this new flip phone sports a pair of 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays, which are a tad larger than the 3.3-inch screens found on the aforementioned SCH-W789. The Galaxy Golden also includes an 8-megapixel rear camera, FM radio support, 1.7GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy Golden's 3.7-inch screens may sound kind of small compared to the 5-inch-and-larger displays found on many Android smartphones lately, but the Golden's dual displays actually look fairly sizable for a flip phone. Mixing those large-ish screens with specs like a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2 help to make the Galaxy Golden an interesting device beyond the novelty of it being an Android-powered flip phone.

Samsung says that the Galaxy Golden will be sold by the carriers SK Telecom and KT for 790,000 won (around $707 USD). Just as with the SCH-W789, it's unlikely that the Galaxy Golden will ever make the journey to U.S. store shelves, but we can still gawk at its official imagery thanks to the wonders of the Internet. Now that we know exactly what makes the Galaxy Golden tick, would you ever consider carrying one as your daily driver?
