Samsung comes up with a flip phone with dual displays

There were lot of buzz about Samsung's upcoming flip phone.

There's something inexplicably attractive about a flip phone, whether it's being able to hang up a call by slamming it shut, or being able to break out your T9 texting skills again.

So far, the Leader 8 has only been confirmed for release in China, though Samsung has yet to announce a price. As for the display, the device features a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display with Full-HD resolution. On the back you'll find a 12-megapixel f/1.7 camera, along with a fingerprint scanner, while on the front there's a 5-megapixel f/1.9 camera. Samsung has even included S Voice instead of Bixby, which is arguably an upgrade over Samsung's unreliable voice assistant.

The company has not given any details of availability outside of China, when the device will be available, or how much it will cost. It's another case of Asia getting the most interesting tech. It is a dual SIM phone with a hybrid SIM slot that allows users to use either a SIM card or microSD card on the second slot.it is loaded with plenty of Samsung apps including the Samsung Pay and some other apps like Weibo, WeChat, Excel, PowerPoint and Word. The flip phone comes with a fast wireless charging technology on board. The rear camera comes coupled with a wider f/1.7 aperture, on the other hand the selfie shooter includes an f/1.9 aperture. Moreover, it is made up of aviation-grade aluminum alloy. The device has a 15.9 millimeter (0.62 inch) thickness and it weighs 235 grams (0.52 lbs). The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor under the hood. Chances are rare if the new flip phone by Samsung will ever hit the Indian shores.

There's now no word from Samsung as to how much the Leader 8 will cost or when it will be available, but don't expect it to be released anywhere in Western markets.
