Samsung has shown that it’s not afraid to go old school and throw Android onto the clamshell form factor, having released a few Android-powered flip phones
in the past. Now some regulatory documents have revealed that Sammy’s cooking up yet another Android flipper.
A filing in China’s TENAA database
show what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy Golden 2, an Android 4.4.4 flip phone. The Golden 2 includes a pair of 3.9-inch 1280x768 AMOLED displays, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 3.7-megapixel front facing camera.
Packed inside of the Galaxy Golden 2’s clamshell form lives a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. The device’s model number is listed as SM-W2015.
Most of the smartphone world is dominated by big glass slabs, so it’s nice to see something different with this Android-powered flip phone. Unfortunately for folks that are interested in something different, Samsung’s Android clamshells have traditionally been Asia-exclusive offerings, and that’s unlikely to change with the Galaxy Golden 2. At least we can check it out in the images.
Would you use the Samsung Galaxy Golden 2 as your daily driver if it were offered by your carrier?
