Samsung reportedly working on an Android powered flip-phone

Thought the days of wacky form factors were over? Think again. Samsung isn’t content with having a Galaxy phone available at nearly every size imaginable, they want every form factor available. According to rumors out of the Korean site DDaily, Samsung is working on a flip-phone powered by Android, to be called the Galaxy Folder.

Pegged as having a dual-core Snapdragon S4, LTE and an 800 by 480 display[1], the Galaxy Folder probably isn’t meant for the US market. In certain Asian countries, despite smartphone usage being on the rise, flip-phones are still incredibly popular. NTT DoCoMo, for example, still has a robust lineup for flip-phones ranging in functionality. The Galaxy Folder would fit in quite nicely to bridge the gap between feature phone and smartphone.

Though we doubt the Galaxy Folder will ever land stateside, we can’t help but wonder what it would be like to stuff a low-end Galaxy S4 into a flip-phone. Several Android and Me staff, including myself, would love to give it a shot. Would you?
