Samsung Brings Back The Flip Phone With The Samsung Leader 8

Sure, the future is here, but we all love the good old days. Remember flip phones? Yeah, probably not, but today Samsung is looking to bring this legendary design back into style. Today we get our first look at Samsung’s Leader 8, a brand new design that brings a flip aspect to the modern smartphone. The Leader 8 features a 4.2-inch full HD AMOLED display on the inside and out, opening to reveal a classic T9 keyboard with a programmable hotkey and dedicated button for texts.

Of course, Samsung brings wireless charging back to the game, even boasting a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with two 12-megapixel cameras. The front facing camera rocks a 5-megapixel design above the inner screen. The phone measures at 15.9mm thick that includes a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64GM of storage, and a microSD slot.
