Samsung Galaxy Folder is a clamshell-shaped Android smartphone for Korea

Samsung Galaxy Folder is a clamshell-shaped Android smartphone for Korea

The clamshell form factor is pretty much dead with most of us opting for all-touchscreen devices, instead. There are some folks who still love this concept and for them Samsung will unveil Galaxy Folder, an Android-powered flip phone.

This device, however, may not come to the West and could easily be available only in South Korea.

Aside from boasting the traditional T9 phone keypad, this phone will also come with a smallish WVGA screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, LTE connectivity support and a specially design UI. And that’s about all we have at this stage — no pricing details nor availability information.

It’s interesting to note that this isn’t Sammy’s first Android clamshell. Last year, they were selling a luxury “Jackie Chan phone” clamshell in China. It was an expensive device though we guess the Galaxy Folder won’t fit into the same price category, quite the contrary.

    Who says we don’t want Android flip phones? I want one. :)

      So do I. I don’t mind if the screen resolution is not too impressive, as long as communication functionality still exists inside.

        For sure, I would totally want one as well :D
