Samsung Corp. is a well-known smartphone maker based in South Korea. And for the record, the tech firm has a wide selection of interesting devices and accessories that are still set to launch this year. However, if recent leaks are true, there’s a new stranger phone coming to the market from Samsung -- a flip phone.

Samsung New Flip Phone

According to the images spotted on TENAA’s website, Samsung is currently developing a new flip phone. The posted picture with information also claims that the phone’s model number will be SM-G1650 and it will be released in the coming weeks.

Surprisingly, as reported by BGR, the SM-G1650 isn’t the first Samsung flip phone to drool this year. In fact, the actual picture on the post does look very similar to the Samsung's phone with model number SM-G9298, which leaked a month ago.

Its Dramatic Changes

The assumed flip phone from Samsung has many features that are almost the same with a regular smartphone such as the Galaxy series. However, the arrangement of all the physical buttons is said to be the most dramatic change seen on the upcoming unique phone. Its Home, Back, as well as Recent buttons, have transferred above the navigation keys, making plenty of space for a dedicated camera and email buttons.

TENAA list the new flip phone as a Samsung device running on the Android operating system, as reported by Android Headlines. In addition to the leaked photos, the specifications of the handset also appeared online and it claims that the phone will feature a 3.8-inch, 800 x 480-pixel display

Aside from that, a quad-core processor will also be presented along with the flip phone with 2 to 3GB of RAM, 16 to 32GB of internal storage. Its camera will be 8MP rear and 5MP front with a battery of 1,950mAh and will run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. All in all, the new Samsung flip phone has fairly reasonable specs.
