Samsung Android Flip Phone Allegedly in the Works

If you love your Android smartphone but still fondly remember your old flip phone then Samsung may have the handset for you. The South Korean tech giant is reportedly working on an Android-powered flip phone cleverly titled the Galaxy Folder. Korean site DDaily sparked the rumor earlier today in a report citing an unnamed Samsung official. The whole thing sounds fishy to us, though we wouldn’t put it past Samsung at this point.

The Galaxy Folder will allegedly come equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, an 800 x 480-pixel display, a physical keypad, LTE connectivity and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. The Samsung official also claims that the device “will be released in August.”

If the Galaxy Folder rumor proves to be true, it’s still unlikely we’ll ever see the Android flip phone here in America. Samsung will likely target Asian markets where the flip phone design is still extremely popular despite rising smartphone adoption, and DDaily notes that the handset is intended for the “domestic market.”
