Samsung's Prepping a High-End Flip Phone That Will Shame All You Adele Haters

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

We all love pointless reminiscence, pretending that yesteryear’s essentials would make our current lives infinitely better. It looks like Samsung’s getting ready to cash in our silliness, with reports emerging that the firm’s got a flip phone -- the likes of which can, for some reason, be found in Adele's Hello music video -- in the works.

The South Korean giant has apparently cooked up a sort of clamshell version of the Galaxy S6, which has been dubbed the SM-W2016. Catchy. If it ever sees the light of day, it’ll reportedly feature a pair of 3.9-inch, 1,280 x 768 displays, a 16-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel selfie cam, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It’ll also run a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, as well as 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.

It actually sounds like high-end baby, and another aspect that’s guaranteed to get people drooling is its size. The flip phone is said to measure 120.4 x 61 x 15.1mm, making it far smaller than most handsets on the market right now (though much thicker). Still, we’d advise you to remain calm for now. Whenever Samsung’s dabbled with flip phones over recent years, it’s limited sales to Korea. [SamMobile]
