More images of the Android clamshell Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 surface
Almost every day, the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 is the subject of some new photographs. What makes the SM-G1600 so darn interesting is its form factor. This is an Android powered clamshell device. Besides all of the recent pictures that the phone has posed for, it also found enough time in its busy day to be certified in China by the TENAA regulatory agency. That was back in July, which means that some might consider the Galaxy Folder 2 overdue for its official introduction.

The handset is an entry-level device with a 3.8-inch screen carrying a 480 x 800 resolution. The Snapdragon 425 chipset is under the hood, featuring a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU and the Adreno 308 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. An 8MP camera is in back with a 5MP front-facing shooter handling selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2000mAh battery. A trip it made to the FCC keeps up hopes that the phone will be offered in the U.S., although to be honest that would appear to be a long shot.

One of the images in the slideshow shows the Galaxy Folder 2 running up a score of 23,434 on AnTuTu. The unit will be available in Gold, and priced at the equivalent of $250 USD. Now we just need Samsung to make it official,

Who is going to trust Samsung anymore? I feel really bad for them, they have lost so much credibility, their top end, highest of the high phone has become a disaster. A Note 7 just burst into flames In Australia. The news is literally 3 hours old. I wonder what would have happened had it been iPhones. The amount of hate Apple would have gotten here is ridiculous. Maybe this will teach the Samsung fans (who are the worst there are and a disgrace to Android) to keep their feet on the ground and stop hating on Apple because of their success. Also the Note 7 in Australia is 1350 dollars, that's more expensive than an iPhone. All that trash talking about iPhones being expensive, really? Instead we should pay 1350 for an exploding battery? https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.news.com.au/technology/gadgets/mobile-phones/samsung-tells-australians-to-turn-off-galaxy-note7-smartphones-investigates-fire-reports/news-story/a72cf15c06d057542d0e495449f3a8bf?client=safari

they admit their fault and willing to fix that problem... (and if note7 is really a failure and they decide to do some massive price cut, I'll get one :v ) btw, why did you post this OOT comment here? fishing for green thumb?

every person makes mistakes. every company makes mistake. My last Samsung was C6625 (Valencia) so no I dont speak on behalf of my fanboyism. It's a good thing that they recalled the device.

"You do something good and no one bats an eye, you make a mistake and everyone loses their minds!" Seriously, by your logic every company should never be trusted, because every company has made at least a single big mistake in the past.

I actually now trust Samsung more than Apple to do the right thing quickly after this entire Note 7 situation. There's been plenty of issues with iPhone's as well and Apple has been very slow to respond or not respond at all. I can find other reasons to hate Samsung (Note 7 and the S7 lags at least with Snapdragon) but when it comes to doing the right thing in a situation like this their setting the tone for how OEM's should respond.

Android Flip Phones need to come on and feel the noise here in America!

Give me one with true mid range specs and I'd be all about it.
