Samsung has finally launched the much-awaited flip phone, the Galaxy Golden. The South Korean giant first introduced the flip phone for the Korean market in August this year and said then it would be released in other markets soon after.
The Samsung Galaxy Golden sports two 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays, on the inside and the outside of the top-half. The phone is powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz processor (unspecified chipset) along with 1.5GB of RAM, and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The phone also includes FM radio and will come in Champagne Gold colour. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS/ AGPS and Bluetooth. For now, there is no official word on 3G connectivity, though third-party sites do list it.
The Galaxy Golden comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera and also includes a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. It includes 16GB of inbuilt storage with no word on expandable storage support.
The Samsung Galaxy Golden also comes with features such as Easy Mode, which features large fonts and icons that enables the users to access and search apps, and Hidden Receiver, which allows users to take calls without opening the flip phone.
“At Samsung, we are committed to making lives easier and smarter for our customers and GALAXY Golden does exactly that. With its innovative dual display and premium golden finish, GALAXY Golden brings together the best of touch and type experience on a smartphone. This specially crafted device is aimed at consumers seeking seamless integration of stunning classic design and functionality to make their lives more efficient,” Vineet Taneja, Country Head, Samsung Mobiles and IT said commenting on the launch.
