Samsung SM-G9298 Android flip phone announced featuring two 4.2 inch displays and 4GB RAM

Samsung's latest Android flip phone has dual 4.2-inch displays, 4GB RAM, and a 12MP camera

64GB of built-in storage, which is further expandable via microSD card up to 256GB.

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. On Thursday, following weeks of leaks and rumors, Samsung unveiled the Leader 8 flip phone on its website.

The bad news is that the handset has only been announced for China Mobile in China and, given Samsung's flip phone release history, it seems unlikely that we'll ever see it in the UK. The phone is made of aviation-grade aluminum alloy and is powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. But in other regions of the world, flip phones have kept up with the smartphone revolution. The phone will only come in one colour, Black, and is likely to go on sale in the near future. The photography department features a 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture. The company also calls it "Leader".

The company has not given any details of availability outside of China, when the device will be available, or how much it will cost. The front snapper has a 5-megapixel sensor which has a f/1.9 aperture and flash for better photography. The Leader 8 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and supports wireless charging. The main USP of the device is its two 4.2-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display which is situated on the inside and outside of the device. Other features include a multi-function configurable hotkey, S Voice, Samsung Pay, and a Secure Folder.

The dimensions of the device are 130.2X62.6X15.9mm, and its weight is 235 grams.

Samsung has not revealed any information regarding the price of this phone.
