The dual-display Samsung Galaxy Golden 2 clamshell leaks in a couple of photos
Several days ago, we told you that Samsung is once again prepping itself to raise many an eyebrow with a new and rather unorthodox smartphone that it allegedly has in the pipeline. The phone in question will be a direct successor to 2013's Samsung Galaxy Golden and will employ the clamshell form factor, which is seen as scarce as hen's teeth these days. Logically dubbed Samsung Galaxy Golden 2, the phone just passed a TENAA certification, thanks to which we can feast our eyes on a couple of photos of the weird smartphone.

Don't let its looks fool you, though. Unlike the original Galaxy Golden, which was extremely underpowered as per 2013's standards, its successor has nothing to be ashamed of under the hood. Say hello to a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (a microSD card slot is available as well), 16MP rear camera, 3.7MP front-facing one, and a duo of an internal and an external 3.9” Super AMOLED displays, both boasting a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.

Of course, being a clamshell, the Galaxy Golden 2 comes with a physical keypad and a set of navigation keys, which will surely remind you of the olden days. There was no Android 4.4 when clamshells seemingly ruled the industry, but the OS in question will have to cope with the bevy of unorthodox hardware controls that the Galaxy Golden 2 will be throwing at it.

Still, don't expect the Galaxy Golden 2 to launch outside China and/or South Korea.
