Samsung Galaxy Golden: Samsung’s flip Android smartphone launched in India

Samsung is the first name that comes to mind when we think of modern smartphones. Samsung prides itself on this and continuously reinvents to give the maximum to the customer. In a market inundated by touchscreen phones, the newest Samsung Galaxy Golden phone is a refreshing change in the market. The flip styled Samsung Galaxy Golden Phone is designed for the market which looks beyond the touchscreen and gives a new option to the users.

The phone supports both the touch as well as type user input. The user can answer the phone without flipping the phone. On the other hand, the keys are distinct which gives a better typing experience and a quicker output. The 3×4 keypad is reminiscent of the previous generation of phones and is a throwback to those times.



The phone comes with a 1.7GHz dual core processor which runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. It has a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The secondary external screen is a 3.5 inch Super AMOLED display with the same resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The RAM memory is 1.5GB while the internal memory is 16GB which can be further expanded up to 64GB.

Galaxy Golden has an 8MP rear camera while the front camera is 1.9MP . The basic connectivity features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are all provided to the phone. The battery is on the slightly lower side at 1820mAh.

The ‘Hidden Receiver’ feature enables users to answer phones quickly without any delay. The Easy Mode enhances the icon size and makes it easier for quicker access to your favorite apps.
