Samsung launches Galaxy Golden clamshell-flip Android smartphone


We can’t quite make out whether this is a ‘Back to the Future’ plan from Samsung or a one-off aimed at placating those who long for the old-style flip-phone. Which ever it is, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy Golden Android smartphone in Korea overnight.

The phone is one of the largest you’ll find, thanks to its flip-out design doubling the 3.7-inch Super-AMOLED display panels.

It’s powered by an as-yet-unnamed dual-core CPU clocking 1.7GHz, running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. According to the report at SamsungTomorrow, the phone also comes with a built-in pedometer as well as the usual smartphone features such as an 8MP camera.

Probably the hardest thing to swallow about this phone is the 790,000Won (approximately $720) price tag, which is quite hefty for what still is only a mid-range phone by current standards, despite the two screens. Still, with its very ‘bling’-like gold/champagne colouring, its likely to only appeal to a certain type of buyer.
