Old-style foldable handsets are still around, and Samsung seems to be ready to hit the market with another such design, but with decent specs for an Android device that launches in 2016. Dubbed Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 (SM-G1600), this upcoming smartphone has just received its Bluetooth certification.

Unfortunately, the Bluetooth SIG database entry only reveals the model number mentioned above. However, a recent FCC filing revealed a 2000 mAh battery as well while the rumors mentioned a 3.8-inch touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm processor, 2 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 200 GB. The handset might launch with a 5 MP camera for selfies and a main one with 8 MP, while the operating system on board is expected to be Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with TouchWiz UI on top.

Since none of the specs mentioned above have been confirmed by Samsung for now, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. We will surely hear more about the Galaxy Folder 2 soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
