The flip phone is BACK!: Samsung launches new Galaxy Folder 2


Following the hype around the new Nokia 3310, Samsung are hoping that their new 90’s style phone – the Galaxy Folder 2 – will be just as popular.

The South Korean company says the new phone has a retro design on the outside but on the inside, it is a different story running the Android 6.0 OS along with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor.

It will also come with 2GB of RAM, an internal memory that can be expanded to 256GB with the use of a microSD card and a removable 1,950mAh battery. It will also have two physical buttons to load contacts, texts and the 2MP camera.

Flip phones were popular before many of us had ever heard of smartphones but have fallen away in recent times.

Previous popular models include the Sony Ericsson T10 and T28, the Motorola Razr V3 and the Motorola MicroTAC 9800X.

However, maybe it is the Nokia 8110 that appeared in the 1990’s film, The Matrix that maybe stands out the most.

The Galaxy Folder 2 costs around 9,000 baht, and will be initially launched in South Korea. The best chance people in Thailand will have to buy one is via eBay.
