Samsung has launched the Galaxy Folder 2 flip phone in South Korea. The device is a successor to the Galaxy Folder launched in 2013 and aims to be a niche product in the smartphone market.
The Galaxy Folder 2 has a 3.8-inch display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The phone supports expandable storage via microSD card slot up to 256GB. The Folder 2 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with TouchWiz UI atop., making it a part of the smartphone category. The phone is powered by a 1950mAh battery.
Since it’s a flip phone, there is a physical keypad with physical navigation keys. Note that keypad is keyless, i.e. they are capacitive touch buttons. The top of the phone has a retro-inspired design while sticking to the present Samsung design language. The phone is available in black and burgundy.
It also provides a 'social app key' that allows easy access to frequently used social media applications. It can be used as a shortcut for applications such as Kakao Talk, Band, or anything that users fancy.
The Galaxy Folder 2 supports 'Easy Mode', which allows you to check the information of pedometer, flashlight, data usage, etc. on the home screen with more improved widgets. You can freely change application icons and font size.
The Galaxy Folder 2 is only available in South Korea for now at a price of around Rs 16,900. However, Samsung hasn’t announced the price for the Folder 2 in any other market....
