What gadget spam? Samsung readies the Galaxy Folder flip phone

What gadget spam? Samsung readies the Galaxy Folder flip phoneIt's a crying shame that our obsession about screen sizes has pretty much killed off the flip phone.

After all, daintily tapping a part of your screen to end a call has nothing on the satisfying snap of a clamshell if you're really looking to put the phone down.

So thank the heavens for gadget spam, as it seems Samsung's one of the few major phone makers still willing to prise open new clamshell phones and push them into our public consciousness.

For the second time in a couple of days we turn to Japan's RBMEN for the details, and it goes like this:

A user manual for a certain Samsung Galaxy Folder (or the SHV-E400K) has found its way into the tech blog's digital hands, revealing the details of a very much real and probably soon-to-launch Android handset.

The manual – in Korean, which suggests that's where the Galaxy Folder will be launched initially – reveals at least one of the displays to be a 3.7in AMOLED job with an 800 x 480 resolution. The CPU is a dual-core Snapdragon 400, while you also get 2GB of RAM and support for 4G LTE.

Frustratingly, that's the sum total of the details at present, but judging by those hints we're talking very much mid-range territory here.

The question is will the Galaxy Folder make it further than the Far East? If its predecessors are anything to go by, probably not.

But no matter – we still get to natter away to each other on our identical all-display slabs about the evils of gadget spam.
