Samsung Flip-Phone with High-End Specifications in the Works

August 3, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

For most of us, Flip-phones are a matter of past. But Samsung doesn’t share a similar view on the once trendy form factor. The recent leaks suggest the company is reportedly working on a new flip-phone device with high-end specifications.

A set of leaked images has now been revealed, detailing the front and rear appearance of the device in its folded state. The front face features a 4.2-inch screen with Full HD resolution. Under the hood is a host of high-end specifications.

That includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage. The battery capacity is of 2300 mAh. The device will be featuring a 12MP primary cam sensor that will be accompanied on the rear face by a fingerprint sensor. On the front, it will be a 5MP sensor that will flare up the front-cam prowess.

The device, codenamed Sm-G9298, will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, which is a big downside considering the imminent entry of Android O. But the very fact of Marshmallow inclusion also reflects the target market where Samsung is intending to launch the device.

Samsung has already dropped a few flip-phones to its native market in South Korea and other Asian markets. It’s most likely that they will be retaining the flip-phone form factor the same markets. An entry to the west seems to be off the view, but we still can expect a surprise. Given the high-end specifications, we cannot completely rule out a fondness for the device among users in US and UK.
