Will Koreans flip for the Samsung Galaxy Golden?
The Samsung Galaxy Golden (SHV-E400) is an Android powered clamshell model that has just been unveiled in Korea, where the phone will launch for carriers SKT and KT. The phone has two 3.7 inch AMOLED screens with 480 x 800 resolution and a dual-core 1.7GHz processor. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 1.9MP respectively. The phone features LTE support, an FM radio, a business card reader and Sammy's S Health. Android 4.2 is pre-installed out of the box and Easy Mode lets newbies set up the handset with ease. An 1820mAh cell powers the phone, which has support for LTE.

This the second clamshell that Samsung has unveiled this month. Last week the Samsung Hennessy was introduced in China and that model is a little bit down the food chain from the Galaxy Golden with dual 3.3 inch screens offering resolution of 320 x 480. Meanwhile, with a name like Galaxy Golden, you wouldn't expect the phone to be any other color but the champagne gold that it is offered in. The phone is priced at 799,700 won ($715 USD). No launch date was announced.

You might be right. For some reason, a lot of asian people like flip phones.

$715? I think the price is too high.

In my opinion having two screens on a phone is as stupid as ASUS putting two displays on laptop (ASUS Taichi).

Would be nice if it didn't have a hinge and had a flexible screen instead. It's an interesting form factor that should really be explored.

You've probably never been to Japan, otherwise you'd know how much Japanese (and I presume Asians in general...) like this form factor. Do you think you or your country are an accurate representation of the whole world?

It has to be a demographics thing, I'm in the States and can't see a beneficial reason for having two screens on a phone, or flip phones in general. Likely their needs are different so they get it, I don't. I suppose it's good that a need is being filled for them.

If Apple or Nokia made this flip phone, The fandroids would be stomping on their grave. Where's the innovation?
