Samsung re-introduces the Galaxy Folder 2 with a model for its hometown market
Samsung's Galaxy Folder 2 offers the mid-range Android experience in a flip phone. Already unveiled in China last September, Samsung re-introduced the model today in its home country of South Korea. There is but one screen on the model, which means that you have to open it up every time you use the device. Still, that allows you to look cool by using that nonchalant single hand flip close, which also results in that satisfying sound made when the device is shut.

The Galaxy Folder 2 uses a T9 "keyless" pad which is made of a smooth surface with the keys outlined on top. A social app key places favorite social media sites just a single tap away. 15 different ringtones have 13 levels of volume, and the handset comes with a soft touch like material on the front and rear.

The flip phone features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA) and is powered by the Snapdragon 425 chipset. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. Keeping the lights on is a 1950mAh battery, and the camera combo from back to front weighs in at 8MP and 5MP, respectively.

The Galaxy Folder 2 will be offered in Black and Burgundy, with different models available for LTE and 3G connectivity. Prices start at 297,000 Korean Won, which is equivalent to $262 USD. So far, there is no word on whether Sammy will bring the device to other markets.
