Yet again, Samsung is disappointing me by releasing a smart flip phone in its native Korea, leaving this flip phone fan empty-handed. The company announced its new Folder Flip 2 today, which looks pretty much just like the old version, but with a larger keypad. The phone is also available in both pink and black. The pink is everything I want, and seriously re-creates old Razr vibes.
Spec-wise, the Flip 2 runs Android Nougat, has a 3.8-inch display, 2GB of RAM, a 1,950mAh battery, up to 256GB of storage, and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. Two models will be made: an LTE model and a 3G version. The phone will cost 297,000 won, or $260.
I’ve written some version of this blog multiple times, but I’ll say it again. I appreciate Samsung keeping my flip phone dreams alive, but please, put this phone out in the US. I don’t know how well it’ll sell or if this is what Americans want, but at least give us the option. Thanks.
