Samsung Officially Revealed Dual Display Flip Smartphone in China

Samsung Officially Revealed Dual Display Flip Smartphone in China

That includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage.

The device, codenamed Sm-G9298, will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, which is a big downside considering the imminent entry of Android O. But the very fact of Marshmallow inclusion also reflects the target market where Samsung is intending to launch the device.

It was only a couple of days ago when we reported on two separate leaks that showed off a new Android flip phone from Samsung. Dubbed the SM-G9298 or "Leader 8", the new flip phone has been confirmed for the Chinese market while its availability elsewhere is still unknown. Moreover, it is made up of aviation-grade aluminum alloy. The Korean giant has announced two flip phones in the country - Galaxy Folder 2 and G9298 aka Leadership 8.

The Samsung Leader 8 has a 12-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front camera.

There's now no word from Samsung as to how much the Leader 8 will cost or when it will be available, but don't expect it to be released anywhere in Western markets.

The South Korean electronics giant has packed the device with numerous features found in its flagship Galaxy S8 phone. The rear camera comes coupled with a wider f/1.7 aperture, on the other hand the selfie shooter includes an f/1.9 aperture.

In addition to that, the device features Samsung Pay, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a configurable hotkey and Always-On Display.

Measuring in at 130.2 x 62.6 x 15.9mm, the phone weighs 235 grams, and is packed with a 2,300mAh battery with wireless charging support. The latest model will most likely remain as an exclusive to the region, being available to those on the China Mobile network. There is no information available on the pricing and release date of Samsung SM-G9298.
