Samsung launches high-end dual-display Android flip phone called the Leader 8.
Previously known only by its model number (SM-G9298), the Leader 8 or Leadership 8 when translated from Chinese, is set to launch in China in the coming days. The device has two 4.2-inch screens, one on the front and one on the inner side of the device. Both are Full HD Super AMOLED screens, with the front display allowing users to quickly check information like the date, the time or call reminders. Leader 8 users will also be able to change the background image and the style of the clock on the front display of the phone.
In addition to the two HD displays, the phone also features a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 2,300 mAh battery, 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. The Leader 8 also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and supports wireless charging.
It’s not the first flip phone from Samsung in recent times. It launched a very similar device called the W2017 earlier this year in China. Samsung is perhaps trying to appeal to nostalgic consumers wanting a piece of the 2000s.
