There is still a market for flip phones in South Korea, as evidenced by LG launching the Lollipop-powered Golden yesterday. Samsung is following suit with the launch of the Galaxy Folder, a $250 LTE-enabled clamshell phone running Lollipop.
Samsung launched the first Galaxy Folder in 2013, with today's phone becoming the second-generation model. Although the name is unchanged, the latest Galaxy Folder features impressive hardware considering the form factor, including a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, 8MP camera, 2MP front shooter, 8GB internal memory and a 1,800mAh battery. The phone will be available in black and white color variations.
The Folder will go on sale in South Korea next month, and is unlikely to be available in other markets.
