Flip phones are still quite popular, I often see people using them. I can understand the appeal. If you use you phone primarily for making calls, the simplicity of flipping the phone open to answer a call and flipping it shut to hang up is hard to beat. When closed, the flip protects the screen from scratches and other damage, eliminating the need for a case. Basic flip phones are still available but it's impossible to find a current one that has the slim form factor and quality look and feel of phones like the classic Motorola RAZR.
Flip phone fans might be seeing a more modern flip soon. Based on FCC and Bluetooth SIG filings, Samsung seems to be on the verge of launching a new flip phone that runs Android.
As its name suggests, the Galaxy Folder 2 isn't Samsung's first Android flip. The original Galaxy Folder, pictured above, launched last year but was only sold in the Korean market. The fact that Samsung has filed for FCC certification means that Samsung is at least considering bringing to the US. I wonder how well it would sell here. Would you buy an Android flip phone if one was available?
