Samsung isn’t done with flip phones, as the company is testing a new smartphone with the classic (and outdated) form factor. A Samsung SM-G1600 can be seen on the import tracking site Zauba, with a screen size of 3.8 inches. That’s the same as the Galaxy Folder’s display, making it a surefire hint that we’re looking at yet another device in the series. Another hint is the model number, which is an increment over the previous Galaxy Folder’s SM-G150.
The new Galaxy Folder is likely to launch in China first, followed by Samsung’s home market. The hardware should be in the mid-range segment like the original Galaxy Folder since the high-end stuff is reserved for the Galaxy Golden lineup (the Korean giant will hopefully employ the latest version of Android, at the least). July is probably when the handset will go official, and we should be seeing more information make its way online in the coming weeks.
Anyone still interested in flip phones?
