Samsung launches high-end dual-screened Android flip phone

Under the Hood

Samsung launched its W2017 flip phone in China past year and now the South Korean company has introduced its successor - Samsung SM-G9298 - for the same market. Priced at 297,000 won (about $260), the phone supports microSD card up to 256GB, and it runs on Android 6.0. That's why it's no real surprise to see Samsung launching the new SM-G9298 flip phone, an ugly name that's not at all representative of the pretty phone it's attached to.

Samsung hasn't made a big official announcement but a product page on its Chinese website lists the details of the device. While Samsung is yet to announce the price and release date for Chinese customers, there is also no word on whether the company will launch the phone in other markets as well. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor which clocks speeds of 2.15 GHz and 1.6 GHz in two cores each. But in many Asian countries, people still prefer flip phones. It also has a lot of impressive features in it. For now, it comes in only one colour-black.

As far as the new Samsung device's camera and optics are concerned, it has a 12-megapixel rear/primary camera which has a f/1.7 aperture, besides LED flash and auto focus. As for the display, the device features a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display with Full-HD resolution.

The dimensions of the device are 130.2X62.6X15.9mm, and its weight is 235 grams.

Samsung has continued the nostalgia trend by fitting the flip phone with a T9 keyboard, while a 2,300mAh battery with wireless charging support keeps it running.

5-megapixel front facing camera with f/1.9 aperture. Other features offered by the smartphone include Samsung Pay, S Voice, and Secure Folder. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the flip phone does not come with a dedicated button for Samsung's Bixby.
