Samsung G9198 Android Flip Phone Could Be Most Powerful Ever Developed, Packs Snapdragon 808 SoC, 2GB RAM

For mobile enthusiasts who are fans of the flip phones of old, this is definitely great news.

Samsung has just recently announced a new Android flip phone that can be bought in China soon. However, instead of the usual midrange or entry level specs included in flip phones, this one gets some meaty specs and features that could even match a traditional touch screen smartphone today.

According to a report by GSM Arena, the Samsung G9198 flip phone was unveiled by the Korean manufacturer in China, and it should hit stores soon. Unfortunately, the report speculated that the device will only be available in the Chinese market.

Based on the report, the Samsung G9198 has some really impressive specs for a flip phone. These features include two screens that both measure 3.9 inches, and are located on either side of the phone's "flipping" part. The screen may not be too sharp in terms of resolution, but 768p is already enough for the eyes with that screen size.

In addition, the device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in memory. In case the chipset sounds familiar, that's because that is the Qualcomm chip used by LG to build its current flagship, the LG G4.

Going back to the G9198, the flip phone has a 16MP primary camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front shooter. Interestingly, the device supports LTE connectivity, heart rate monitoring capabilities, dual-SIM support, and a 2,020mAh battery. There is also a microSD card slot for storage expansion, and the flip phone runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.

Unfortunately, the Samsung flip phone version this year has not yet been priced. But even if it gets a price tag, only the Chinese market would be able to enjoy the device that brings the best of both worlds -- touch and type.
