Real pics of Samsung's clamshell Android with 16 MP camera emerge, flippin' awesome
SM-G9198, but with a modern day Android twist.Flips are still the rage in Japan and some other Asian countries, and we are certain there are quite a few nostalgically-driven fans who remember the convenience of a flip handset. Well, Samsung decided to cater exactly to that crowd when it unveiled the
Samsung's flip Android comes with two 3.9-inch Super AMOLED panels with 768 by 1280 pixels of resolution, both of them protected by layers of Corning's Gorilla Glass 4, which is the same ultra-resistant glass that you're going to find on high-end Samsung handsets such as the Galaxy Note5 or the Galaxy S6. The handset draws its processing power from the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, a SoC that's paired with 2 GB of RAM.
Couple those with a 16 MP rear camera, a 5MP secondary shooter, 16 GB of expandable internal storage, LTE connectivity, and a 2020mAh battery, and this is easily the most powerful flip phone ever done. On the software side, the Samsung SM-G9198 flip phone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, of course. You'll probably only be able to import that puppy, rather than buy it on a US carrier, but in the meantime you can feast your eyes on real life pictures of the handset that just emerged.
