Samsung Galaxy Folder’s First Press Images Leaked


Samsung’s upcoming Android-powered flip phone, the Galaxy Folder, has been leaked a number of times in recent weeks, so we already know exactly what it’s going to look like. And now we have some early press shots that all but confirm its final design.

Also known as the Galaxy Hennessy, this device is set to be a midrange smartphone with a traditional numeric keypad, and it’s likely to remain in South Korea and other Asian countries where flip phones are still popular devices.

We had hoped Samsung would give the Galaxy Folder two internal touch screens, or maybe a physical QWERTY keyboard that could give the latest BlackBerry 10 devices some more competition. But as you can see from the pictures above and below, the company has chosen to go with a numeric keyboard instead.


The Galaxy Folder does have two displays — both of which are 3.27 inches in size with a HVGA (320×480) resolution — with one situated on the outside of the device and one of the inside. According to recent rumors, it will also have dual-SIM support, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

The handset is expected to ship with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean onboard, and it’ll sport Samsung’s familiar TouchWiz user interface. There’s no word on when it will be unveiled or when it’ll be available just yet, but with the leaks coming thick and fast, we’re not expecting Samsung to keep it wrapped up for too long.
