Samsung is reportedly gearing up to release a new flip phone dubbed Galaxy Golden 3, tied to the model number SM-W2016. This handset recently made a silent visit to the GFXBench site and thereby, full specifications have been made public.
The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 flip phone is the Exynos 7420-based chipset with an octa-core processor on board, which guarantees excellent performance. This Exynos chip was last seen in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5.
The predecessors Galaxy Golden and Galaxy Golden 2 were apparently exclusive to China. But then, the successor Galaxy Golden 3 will be making a debut in India other than China, as cited in the import-export tracker called Zauba, specific to that country. With the retro slider phone making a global comeback in the form of “BlackBerry Priv,” we won’t be surprised to see this flip phone reappear in the international store shelves as well.
Moving on to other key specifications, the Galaxy Golden 3 will reportedly come with a 4.6-inch display and 768 x 1,280 pixels screen resolution. However, it is worth noting that the reported “4.6-inch” is a huge display size for a flip phone. According to folks at Phone Arena, the benchmark site could have misread the screen size and therefore, the device might come with two AMOLED displays, similar to the predecessor. On the software front, the device will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS, straight out of the box.
The Galaxy Golden 3 will apparently come backed by a solid 3 GB of RAM and a whopping 64 GB of native storage space. When it comes to camera configuration, Phone Arena said that a 16-megapixel rear-facing sensor, in addition to a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, can be expected.
