Ever since Apple introduced the first iPhone, smartphone makers have been moving away from physical keypads for their handsets. The thing that took me the longest to get used to when I bought my first Android phone was the fact that the phone dialer was just another app among many — and that you had to fire it up before you could make a call.
It looks like Samsung is mixing the new style with a bit of old-school design with an upcoming device that may be called the Galaxy Golden. It’s a flip-phone with a physical phone dialer below the display.
According to SamMobile the phone will have decent specs, including a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, WiFi, GPS< NFC, 4G LTE, and FM Radio, and front and rear cameras. It’s said to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It has two 3.7 inch displays — one you can see when you open up the phone to use the dialer, and a second that you can see even when the screen is closed.
