Android-powered Samsung G9098 Flip Phone Headed To China

There are flip smartphones we never hear about due to their very limited availability. Samsung has such gadgets for some Asian markets with the most notable one being the Galaxy Golden. It was released last November with dual Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) displays and Snapdragon 400 SoC.

It seems Samsung is prepping a successor of the Galaxy Golden - the SM-G9098. The device has been already certified by the Chinese TENAA regulatory and should go official very soon.

While we are yet to learn the G9098 official name, we can give you most of its key specs and features thanks to the TENAA's docs and images. The G9098 features two 3.67" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) displays and runs on a quad-core 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.

There is nothing mentioned on the processor's model, but a quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) @ 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) can mean only one thing - Snapdragon 800 chipset, right? The rest of the revealed specs are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS plus Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) with HSPA and TD-SCDirect Memory Access (DMA) connectivity, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

The pictures of the G9098 spill the beans on even more details - the phone will come two SIM beds (3G networks support available only on the primary SIM), a microSD expansion slot and a 13MP rear capturing camera with a Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash.

There is nothing official on the flip G9098 yet, but we bet the official announcement should be upon us. This one most probably won't create it outside China. But honestly, we are not sure many people would have liked it anyway - even if you can live with the uninspiring screens it still is quite bulky - 16mm thick and weighs 174g.
