Samsung’s second Android running flip phone has been named Galaxy Folder 2 and the leaked images of the flip phone show the Marshmallow powered smartphone in the gold color. The specifications of Galaxy Folder 2 are far from attractive, but Samsung is aiming to bring back the once popular form factor of smartphones that was once taken by the world, so we respect their decision.
The specifications of Galaxy Folder 2 include a 1.4GHz processor present in a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. Exact details on the chip has not been provided, but the rest of the hardware does shed light that the smartphone is going to be a powerful one and you will see why. A 2,000mAh battery is non-removable and there’s also a space available to expand your storage up to 128GB. Unfortunately, internal storage is just limited to 8GB, so there is definitely going to be a time when you will have to purchase a microSD card in the future.
The phone is running Android Marshmallow 6.0.1, so it is probably going to be running this update when it is officially released, but we’re hoping for an Android N update to become available for this too so fingers are crossed for the flip phone. There’s an 8MP camera at the rear and 5MP camera at the front.
Overall, the hardware specifications don’t speak volumes for the device, but because it’s a flip phone, it can make a decent comeback to the market, as long as the price is subjective to the consumer’s budget. If you take a look at the language used in the settings menu, it’s Chinese, and it’s quite possible that Galaxy Folder 2 will remain bound to the Chinese market.
The price of the smartphone is unknown, but we can tell by looking at the hardware specifications that it could be priced below the $250 range.
