Samsung is rumored to be working on a clamshell Android powered phone, which is designed exclusively for those who long for the good old days. Now there's a good reason why the folder form factor are almost extinct now (it wastes too much space for a world obsessed with thin and compact), but obviously Samsung feels it's worth another chance.
Samsung Galaxy Folder will be an Android powered flip-phone with a classic alphanumeric keyboard and a touch screen. The upcoming device is rumored to feature a display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and the phone is expected to feature a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
The Galaxy Folder will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will be equipped with LTE radio. Unfortunately, there is no word on the launch date and the pricing of the flip-phone at the moment.

Good Think...I like it.
Can't imagine a HUGE clamshell phone with 4-5' screen.. Would prefer to see QWERTY sliders in Android (Much like Nokia N900, N97)
