It supports connectivity options such as 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and MicroUSB.
Codenamed SM-G1600, the Galaxy Folder 2 is most likely to come with dual SIM support. The smartphone is expected to come with an 8-megapixel of a primary camera along with a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It measures 122 x 60.2 x 15.5mm and weighs 155 grammes.

Samsung coming up with a clamshell smartphone is pretty surprising, though. The recent clamshell phone that we witnessed this year was by Gionee – the W909. It would be interesting to see how buyers respond to this device by Samsung. Stay tuned with us for more on Samsung Galaxy Folder 2.
