    Samsung Announces the 'Galaxy Golden' Dual-Screen Android Flip-Phone


    Apparently Samsung didn't get the memo that smartphones killed flip-phones. In fact, not only do they have the new Samsung Galaxy Folder which debuted a few weeks ago, they just announced a second folding Android-powered flip phone. This new one is called the Galaxy Golden. Here are the specs,
    • Dual 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screens (on display on the outside and one on the inside of the flip)
    • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
    • 1.7GHz dual-core processor
    • 8MP camera
    • "Easy mode" that can optimize the home screen
    • A pedometer that works with S Health
    • A business card recognition function
    • FM radio

    What do you guys think? Is this just retro enough to be cool, or simply a dud?

    The D-pad makes me laugh. Almost like they didn't know what to do with that space so they filled it with obsolete tech.


    And LOL..."Galaxy Golden" for a phone clearly targeted at old people clinging to their feature phones.

    I think a full size keyboard would have been better but maybe this is aimed at a target group in their "golden years"...

    I do all the time in the car for the simple reason of limited data plans. If I stream all month, I use up nearly all my data, which is fine except I have to not use it for anything but streaming music.

    Yep they still do. In a world where data plans are capped. FM radio is data plan free. However that's why Verizon and other US carriers eliminate FM from their phones. To force people to use their data plans.
