Gold Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 leaked in high quality images

Gold Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 leaked in high quality images
While many of us haven't seen, much less used a clamshell smartphone in a very long time, Samsung continues to churn them out en masse. Over the past couple of months, we've seen numerous scraps of evidence that a sequel to the Galaxy Folder is in the works. GFXBench specs followed by TENAA certification seemed to confirm its existence, while just few days back, a couple of promotional images appeared. Now, a whole bunch of hi-res snaps have leaked out of China. 

With promo graphics and hands-on photos now doing the rounds, it shouldn't now be too long until the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 becomes official. From what we gather, it'll get a 3.8-inch, 480 x 800 display, along with Qualcomm's 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 425 and 2 gigs of RAM. Storage-wise, there's said to be 16 GB of expandable real estate, while the 8-megapixel main camera should be accompanied by a 5-megapixel offering for selfies. Elsewhere, the device will be kept afloat courtesy of the 2,000 mAh battery, and should run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. 

As for the cost, the last version launched for the equivalent of $250 USD, so it's probable that the newer model arrive at a similar price point. Since the original Galaxy Folder didn't retail outside of Asia, we're not holding our breath for its sequel's chances of venturing out either. 

If Sammy did decide to make this available in your area, though, would you consider buying it? Take a look through the gallery, and do share your thoughts with us below.

I think Samsung could hit it big if they also released a Tizen flip phone, considering how light its requirements are, and the side-loading Android applications would be phenomenal. I just want an Android Flip Phone in the states and hope prepaid networks embrace them as well.

Am I the only one who finds this thing ugly?

I think the fact Samsung's Folder and Golden series are their only unique (read: distinguishable) handsets is rather sad. Come on, if this was even colored a sickly doodoo brown it'd still look better then their ass-faced C Series and A-Series.

"and should run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box." Samsung is either too lazy or too stupid to develop their own OS. Sorry, Tizen doesn't count. Samsung needs to break their dependence on Google, otherwise they'll never be able to optimize their phones 100%, like Apple does. Sad when a two year old iPhone creams the Note 7 in speed tests. In other news, this clamshell monstrosity will be DOA in all developed countries.

I wish there was an N90 like Android smartphone with a superb camera. I'd be worth the risk cuz you won't need two cameras for selfie and imagine vlogging with that.

I would love a flip phone running andriod. I miss ending an argument by slapping the phone shut. Priceless.
