If physical keyboards can make a comeback, why not flip phones? According to leaked images, that is exactly what Samsung is thinking. Last week a Samsung flip phone was certified by TENAA (Chinese regulatory authority). Today, images of the device have been unearthed, and it looks very much like a Samsung device.
The phone has a very Samsung Galaxy S6-like vibe. The back of the phone looks almost identical to the Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The sides are curved, and the camera and flash look identical. The rest of the phone is where things get different. The flip mechanism is something straight out of the early 2000’s, but the specs are actually pretty good.
There are two 3.9-inch 1280×768 displays (one on both sides of the flip). It features a 16MP camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. Powering the device is an Exynos 7420 processor and 3GB of RAM. The phone will come with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board. The specs are right up there with other high-end devices, but this form factor is drastically different. Would you want to go back to a flip phone?
