Samsung launches Galaxy Folder 2 flip phone in South Korea

There aren’t a lot of manufacturers out there that are still making flip phones but Samsung is doing its part to keep the trend alive by launching a new device every now and then. The company launched the Galaxy Folder 2 ten months back and the handset has only been available in China since then. Samsung today announced that the Galaxy Folder 2 will now be available in South Korea.

The Galaxy Folder 2 is basically a mid-range Android handset in a clamshell form factor. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.

It has a 3.8-inch TFT LCD display with WVGA resolution aside from an 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera. Both cameras have f/1.9 aperture. There’s also a 1950mAh battery onboard.

Measuring in at 122 x 60.2 x 15.4mm, this 160g flip phone is powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Samsung is going to offer its LTE and 3G variants to customers in South Korea.

Samsung is going to sell the Galaxy Folder 2 flip phone in South Korea for 297,000 won or $260. The handset will be available for purchase in black and burgundy colors. Samsung hasn’t said if it plans on releasing this handset in other markets across the globe.
