    Samsung China announces Snapdragon 808 flip phone with 6MP front camera, 16MP back camera, dual display.

    Remember the rumor about how Samsung would craft a smartphone running the hexa-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor? Well, the Galaxy S6 edge+ that Samsung announced yesterday packed the company’s homegrown, octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, but a new flip phone announced today by the Chinese branch of the company bears the Snapdragon 808.

    The new smartphone has a Chinese name that’s hard to understand unless you’re Chinese, so the wisest thing to do is go with the model number: SM-G9198. This new flip phone has some specs that make it one of the best flip phones money could buy: a 16MP back camera with f/1.9 aperture and a 6MP front camera (that’s right; a 6MP, as opposed to the 5MP front camera of the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Galaxy Note 5). Other specs include dual 3.9-inch, Super AMOLED displays with a screen resolution reminiscent of the Nexus 4 (1280 x 768). Both displays contain Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4, the same durable glass found in the Galaxy Note 4 (the first smartphone in the world to feature Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4), Samsung’s Galaxy S6 series, and the Galaxy Note 5.

    The Snapdragon 808 flip phone has 16GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot that can provide an additional 128GB of storage. Keeping the lights on is a 2,020mAh battery that Samsung says can run 189 hours on standby.

    This seems like a happening flip phone (including the futuristic dual displays), particularly when you consider the idea of a flip phone housing a hexa-core processor and a 16MP back camera with a trendsetting 6MP front camera. At the same time, it’s highly unlikely that anyone else will see this flip phone except China customers. Sometimes, what is old can be made new again.
