Galaxy Folder 2 receives Bluetooth certification

We’ve known for a while now that Samsung is working on a new Android-powered clamshell smartphone called the Galaxy Folder 2. We first caught wind of the device when components to build the unit were spotted in an import listing two months ago, then four weeks later a batch of prototypes were sent to India for testing and evaluation purposes. Now, however, it would appear that the handset is one step closer to seeing the light of day as it has just received Bluetooth certification bearing the model number SM-G1600.

Unfortunately, we don’t have much to go on with regards to specifications. A recent FCC filing revealed that the Galaxy Folder 2 will sport a 2,000mAh battery, but that’s all we know for sure. Speculation suggests that the device will also pack a 3.8-inch touchscreen, a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable up to 200GB via microSD), an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. It’s also expected to run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI straight out of the box.

I have been wanting an Smartphone-esque flip phone for a while now. There are just a few things that it needs to make it a buy for me. Good price, a clock on the front, solid flip action (preferably button activated (Moto i680), good battery life and carrier compatibility. If it’s got those I’m sold!

.. depends on the screen resolution and the volume/sound quality. It’ll be tough to change from my Note 5, I think. (although I’ve wanted to back to a flip phone for years)
