TENAA certifies the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 flip phone

TENAA certifies the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 flip phone
The SM-W2016 has been certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA. The model is most likely the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3, the next iteration of the flip phone series, which was leaked on the GFXBench site last month.. According to TENAA, the flip features internal and external 3.9-inch screens, both with a 768 x 1280 resolution. There is a question about the screen size since GFXBench had it listed at 4.6-inches. Either way, an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU is under the hood. 3GB of RAM is on board, along with 64GB of non-expandable storage.

The Flip phone comes equipped with a 16MP rear camera. A 5MP snapper graces the front of the phone for selfies and video chats. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. A flip phone is usually much thicker than your average handset, which is why the 15.1mm thickness of the Galaxy Golden 3 should come as no surprise. The original Samsung Galaxy Golden measured 15.8mm thick when it was released in November 2013. The new model weighs 204 grams. The original tipped the scales at 179 grams.

While Samsung has yet to unveil this phone, the original Samsung Galaxy Golden had a model number of SM-W2014, and the SM-W2015 was the Samsung Galaxy Golden 2. The former was released in South Korea while the latter was never released. The SM-W2016 should be the Galaxy Golden 3. Unfortunately, TENAA did not publish any photographs of the phone.

Now that the Galaxy Golden 3 has received its TENAA certification, we could see the handset unveiled by Samsung soon.


Thanks for the tip!

Interesting how this cheapo can have a MicroSD card slot in it's thin top half, yet the so-claimed flagships can't have the same...fast internal storage is no excuse, my much faster SSD equipped Surface Pro utilizes an 80 MB/s MicroSD card for non-startup apps, music, videos, photos, etc, all with no problems. If that's not fast enough for your apps/photo/video/music needs, there are UFS 2.0 MicroSD cards with speeds up to 250 MB/s http://www.toshiba.com/taec/news/press_releases/2014/memy_14_708.jsp
