Leaked Samsung 'Galaxy Folder' suggests return of the dualdisplay flip phone

It feels like yesterday we were discussing the alleged death of form factor diversityin the smartphone world, and now Samsung comes up with this: a mid-range clamshell called the Galaxy Folder (SHV-E400K) with displays on both sides of the lid. According to Japanese site RBMen, which discovered a Korean-language user manual for the device on Samsung’s website, at least one of the displays is a 3.7-inch AMOLED panel with 800 x 480 resolution. Other specs include a Snapdragon 400 dual-core chip, 2GB of RAM and LTE support. The basic design is nothing new to Samsung, which came out with the similar SCH-W2013 in China last year, and theSCH-W999 a year before that, but it’s good to see evidence of its survival in 2013 — and especially if it’s destined for Samsung’s home market. If it was up to us though, we’d put some e-ink in that second display.
