Although the South Korea-based Samsung Electronics is loosing its grip in the smartphone market and focusing on building a capable device possible with cutting edge old mobile phone designs. Admit it, the company has actually decided to revisit what used to be popular by introducing a new range of flip phones, placed a filing with China’s regulatory – TENAA. Still an essential Samsung flip phone.
Game begins with the launch of its twelve months old Galaxy S series that are powered by Android platform, which have proven to be extremely popular over the years. Samsung has really started a class design with the launch of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Galaxy Note5 – physical appearance of the hardware is being ultimately classified. In similar fashion, said new found design importance seems to have been carried across to this new flip phone series.
No, it’s not the first time we are looking at what Samsung proposing with the leaked SM-W2106 flip phone, managed to find itself a way into a public domain. Clamshell design, is what Samsung is proposing that features two 3.9-inch Super AMOLED displays that live on either side of the clamshell cover. Each screen carries a 1280 x 768 pixels resolution that is capable of displaying photographs captured on the equipped 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. Yes, that’s right, there’s also a “physical” keypad, just like they used to be.
The technical prospective of the proposed hardware includes 3GB of RAM, ships with an accompanying 64-bit Exynos 7420 processor and adds a 64GB of on-board storage. Pre-installed with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as Samsung’s flip phone stock OS. The metallic casing and rather beautiful sleek design weighs in at 204 grams and is just 15.1mm in thickness when closed.
