Not too long ago, Samsung launched its first Android-based dual screen
flip phone, the Samsung W789

phone, the Galaxy Golden SHV-E400 has also been officially unveiled in
Korea. Like the Samsung W789, the Samsung Galaxy Golden also features a

The Samsung Galaxy Golden sports two 3.7-inch Super AMOLED displays, on the inside
and the outside. The phone is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor
with 2GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The phone also
includes FM Radio and will come in Champagne Gold colour. Connectivity
options include Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. It comes with a 8-megapixel
camera. The onboard storage and other specifications of the phone are
not clear at this stage.
The Galaxy Golden comes with plethora of
apps like S Health, Business card app which recognises contact details
when clicking a photo of a business card, WatchOn app which offers TV
program guide, and S Translator App that can translate 12 languages,
either spoken or in text, including emails or sign boards as well.
