Samsung officially introduces the SM-G9298 flip phone

Samsung SM-G9298 flip phone announced Key features and specifications

It comes with 64GB on-board storage which can be expanded upto 256GB using MicroSD Card.

South Korean giant has launched their next iteration of the flip smartphone in China known as Samsung SM-G9298. It can be also referred as Samsung 8 or flagship 8 as the company may just want to go with HMD Global style of naming the new Nokia Android phones.

Although unconfirmed, the device likely won't make it to Western Markets.

The bad news is that the handset has only been announced for China Mobile in China and, given Samsung's flip phone release history, it seems unlikely that we'll ever see it in the UK. It has also not announced if they will be selling the phone in India or like its predecessors it will be exclusive to China. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor which clocks speeds of 2.15 GHz and 1.6 GHz in two cores each.

When it comes to the camera segment, the Leadership 8 (G-9298) sports a 12MP camera with a wider f/1.7 aperture on the rear while a 5MP secondary sensor with F/1.9 aperture sits up front.


The South Korean electronics giant has packed the device with numerous features found in its flagship Galaxy S8 phone.

The detailed specs of the device show that it supports a 4.2 inch Super AMOLED Full HD displays with 1080X1920 pixels.

Samsung has continued the nostalgia trend by fitting the flip phone with a T9 keyboard, while a 2,300mAh battery with wireless charging support keeps it running.

The flip phone will be available only China for now. The Leader 8 also houses 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable storage, and is made from aviation-grade aluminum alloy. The Leader 8 weighs 235 grams, is 15.9 mm thick, and comes with quite a few features including Samsung Pay, Secure Folder, and S Voice. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the flip phone does not come with a dedicated button for Samsung's Bixby.
