In a span of weeks, Samsung has launched two new clamshells. The tech giant certainly thinks the flip-phone is not going anywhere any time soon.
The Galaxy Golden has just been debuted and its similarity to the Folder is rather striking. The Folder was leaked a few weeks ago, just before the official arrival of the Hennessey, under an almost identical model number.
The Galaxy Golden sports Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, dual 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screens, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel camera. It is also packed with features designed for the older generation including an "easy mode" that enables optimization of the home screen, an FM radio, a business card recognition function, and a pedometer that works with S Health.
S Health is a personal wellness app that was initially demonstrated at the Unpacked launch of Samsung Galaxy S III. It is compatible with such healthcare sensors as body composition scales, blood pressure monitors, and blood glucose meters, and collects health data to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
It can be expected that those Koreans who are in their golden years and can afford over $790 or about 790,000 won will appreciate the Galaxy Golden's tailored features and its aging form factor.
