Samsung flip phone SM-G9298 launched with dual display and Snapdragon 821 chipset

Samsung has finally announced its flip smartphone with dual display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821, the chipset also found on Google's Pixel series and LG G6. The smartphone is called the Samsung G-9298 and will be the successor to last year's W2017 flip smartphone. It is an incremental update to last year's W2017 flip phone and is now powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. It also offers support for expandable storage up to 256Gan via a SD card slot. In terms of camera, the phone offers a 12MP dual pixel autofocus rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture.

The Samsung G-9298 flip phone features a dual 4.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, one on the inside and one on the outside. The display on the outside can be used to check quick information, like the date, time or a screen effect combining clock, date and background pictures. The display on the outside also acts as an always-on display. The device features a configurable hotkey that can be used to quickly open a common function.

The smartphone has a rear mounted fingerprint scanner and it seems more accessible than the one found on Samsung's Galaxy S8 series. It supports WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and uses a microUSB port. The handset is backed by a 2300mAh battery and supports wireless charging. Unfortunately, this new flip smartphone is only available in China and there is no word on price just yet. It is also unclear whether Samsung will bring this device to any markets outside of China.
