Many of you might think that the flip phone era is over, well, not quite. Flip phones are still quite popular in Asia, and a number of smartphone OEMs tend to release a couple of smart flip phones a year, including Samsung. The company's Galaxy Golden 3 smart flip phone has paid a visit to TENAA recently, and the device has also been certified by the FCC, which suggests it will launch in the US as well. That being said, the device did pop up at TENAA, and we get ahold of its specifications, but we didn't know how it looks, until now.
The phone has appeared at TENAA once again, but this time around the listing includes the images of the device. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you'll get to see the Galaxy Golden 3 in the flesh thanks to 5 images posted on TENAA. It seems like the device will be made out of metal, and it actually looks quite sleek. Samsung's design is quite recognizable, even in this device, mainly thanks to the camera, and the additional sensors next to it.
The Galaxy Golden 3 will sport two 3.9-inch 1280 x 768 OLED displays (internal and external ones), along with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable internal storage. The phone will be powered by an octa-core SoC clocked at 2.1GHz, while a 16-megapixel snapper will be located on the back of this phone. The 5-megapixel shooter will be available up front, and the device will ship with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with Samsung's custom UI available on top of it. The phone will measure 15.1mm, while it will weight 204 grams, which doesn't exactly make it the lightest phone around.
That is pretty much it. This is a high-end flip phone which we initially expected to be available only in Asia, but FCC's certification definitely offers a different story. It will be interesting to see if the phone will be interesting to US consumers if Samsung opts to launch it in the US, same goes for Europe actually. Anyhow, the device will launch soon, and we'll keep you posted, stay tuned.
