Nothing says "this conversation is over" better than the satisfying click of a flip phone, while the BlackBerry Priv is already proving there is a market for decked-out sliders, too. That is why we asked you yesterday if you would buy an Android flip phone or a slider in today's world of thin phones with large displays. Well, well, well, it looks like these ancient form factors still have plenty of fans, as only 27% of our respondents said a resounding "no," so manufacturers might want to take note, and issue a richer variety.
The rumor mill on Samsung's next clamshell with Android, the Galaxy Golden 3, is in overdrive, as the flip leaked today from the Chinese certification agency TENAA, flaunting pretty great specs for what has been a nearly forgotten form factor.
With a 3.9" exterior and the same diagonal interior display of 1280 x 768 pixels resolution, as well as a 2.1 GHz Exynos 7 Octa processor and 3 GB of RAM, the Golden 3 can take on any Android, more so that it is said to ship with 32 GB or 64 GB storage options from the get-go. It should arrive with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and a hearty 16 MP camera on the back, perhaps the same high-end unit that is in the Galaxy S6.
