Days after LG took the wraps off of a new Android-powered flip phone, the folks at Samsung have introduced their own new Android flipper.
The Samsung Galaxy Folder is a new flip phone that runs Lollipop on a 3.8-inch WVGA touch display. The Folder’s also got 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot, and 4G LTE connectivity.
To help make the Galaxy Folder easier to use, Samsung has included a large keypad, which includes three standard Android navigation buttons. Also included are dedicated keys for the camera and social apps.
The Samsung Galaxy Folder is launching in South Korea in August in black and white color options. It’ll cost ₩ 297,000, or approximately $256 USD.
The Galaxy Folder is a bit higher-end than LG’s Gentle, offering a larger and higher-resolution display, better cameras, and double the internal storage. Of course, the Galaxy Folder is a bit pricier than the Gentle, too. Unfortunately, those of us outside of Korea are unlikely to ever get to handle either of them, because these Android flip phones rarely see wide releases.
