Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 Flip Phone Gets Certified in China
The Chinese regulatory agency TENAA has certified the SM-W2016, which is assumed to be Samsung’s next iteration of the flip phone series, called the Galaxy Golden 3. The new flip phone surfaced online in the form of a leaked GFXBench result last month.
Unlike GFXBench leak which had the device listed at 4.6-inches, TENAA suggests it to sport internal and external 3.9-inch screens, both with a 768 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood, the phone packs an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU, 3GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage.
The Galaxy Golden 3 boasts a 16 MP rear camera coupled with a 5 MP snappper for selfies and video chats. The phone will come with Android 5.1.1 pre-installed. The new model is expected to weigh about 204 grams and measure 15.1mm thick. For comparison, the original Samsung Galaxy Golden, which was released in November 2013, tipped the scales at 179 grams and measured 15.8mm thick.
It’s worth mentioning that the Galaxy Golden 2, with the model number SM-W2015, was also certified by TENAA a year ago but never got a release. So take these details with a grain of sand until the phone is made official by Samsung.
