Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 Rumors, Release Date & Update: Elegant New Flip Phone Coming Soon?

We find ourselves in the age of large-screened or phablet-built smartphones which technically leave no trace of the iconic foldables phones had before. Companies such as Samsung and Motorola had their roster of models to show but there is a chance that the former may be coming out with a successor to its Samsung Galaxy Folder (SM-G150) phone soon.

Such cropped up after an alleged device marked ‘SM-G160’ popped up over the Zauba import database. The Samsung Galaxy Folder, probably an unknown for some, was not exactly a device that carried impressive specs though it was still and Android foldable phone.

With that in mind, will Samsung take those points into consideration and come out with a more alluring foldable phone? If not, the alleged Samsung Galaxy Folder successor may as well be a waste of time if such is the case.

There will be some folks who may be interested in getting one, mostly out of curiosity and convenience. Looking over the roster of Samsung flagships, the Samsung Galaxy Folder is admittedly something that does not carry the same hype as the Samsung Galaxy S7 or even the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 or 7.

Looking over the spec sheet, the Samsung Galaxy Folder successor will feature a 3.8-inch screen (480x800 pixels) which will remain diagonal.

Other possible specs (per rumors) may include 1.5 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera, a 1,800 mAh battery and something that will likely have Andoid 6.0 Marshmallow.

From the rumoured specs alone, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 (SM-G160) will be in the mid-range phone category, and is something likely to be made available only in Asia.

The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 is not exactly the top-of-the-line phone one would consider, particularly the ones who exhaust the advanced features available today. But, for the ones who want something handy (not to mention iconic), the flip phone should get its fair share of attention and sales especially with a revamped elegant design.
