Samsung Has Another Crack At Clamshell Phones With ‘Galaxy Folder’

The clamshell phone is mostly a dead species, though it continues to prove popular in regions such as China. That doesn’t mean manufacturers like Samsung aren’t willing to experiment with new devices using the venerable design, the most recent being the supposed “Galaxy Folder”. Whether or not we’ll ever see it in Australia is anyone’s guess, but it’s hard not to be enticed by a pair of 480 x 800 AMOLED displays.

Going by the identifier “SHV-E400K”, the Galaxy Folder first popped up a few days ago when a manual (in Korean) became available via Samsung’s own download site. It includes basic representations of the phone, along with the following specifications:

  • CPU: 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • Display: 2x Super AMOLED 480 x 800
  • Weight: 179g
  • Dimensions: 59.5 x 118 x 15.8mm

Sadly, memory size is not specified however, GSMInsidier reportedly received additional details as well as photos and it’s confident that it’ll come with 2GB of RAM.

2GB sounds about right, given the ‘Galaxy Folder’ looks very much like a slightly longer and thinner update on the SCH-W2013, so if that didn’t hold your interest, I doubt this will either.
