Samsung has released several Android flip phone in China in last year and one of them is Samsung Galaxy Golden. At the moment, it looks like Samsung is going to release another Android flip phone in China after the Samsung SM-G9098 being certified in China.
Samsung SM-G9098 has two displays inside and outside of the device. Both displays have the same 3.67-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels resolution. The 800 x 480 pixels resolution is lower than the 1920 x 1080 pixels FHD because there is no need for such high resolution on a 3.67-inch display. The processor is a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. From the clock speed, the processor should be the Snapdragon 800 from Qualcomm.
The certification database revealed that Samsung SM-G9098 has two cameras, but did not reveal the megapixels. Furthermore, it has been confirmed that the device has Bluetooth, WLAN, GPRS, GPS, USB, and 3.5mm audio jack. Unfortunately, the device doesn’t support MicroSD expansion.
The dimension of the device is 117 × 59.5 × 15.8mm while the weight is 173.5g. Since Samsung SM-G9098 is a flip phone, don’t expect thin design from it. The images above show us the Samsung SM-G9098 in black and it will arrive in blue option as well.
Samsung SM-G9098 is exclusively for China Mobile carrier. Therefore, it supports GSM and TD-SCDMA networks in China. Sorry to inform you that no TD-LTE connectivity for the device after all. Lastly, the Android version is 4.3 Jelly Bean.
From the product history of Samsung, this Samsung SM-G9098 isn’t likely to launch outside China and Korea. Furthermore, it is only exclusive to China Mobile. You may look elsewhere if you are not in those two countries but it is really hard to find an Android flip phone in the market.
