Samsung launches dual-screen Leader 8 flip smartphone in China

In terms of storage, the Leadership 8 carries 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

Tuesday announcement followed the launch of Samsung Galaxy Folder 2, another flip phone from the South Korean tech giant which debuted in June. Leader 8 is an android flip phone and comes with two screens, a fingerprint sensor, wireless charging and many more.

The SM-G9298 flip phone was spotted receiving TENAA certification in May.

The device is made from 6013 aluminum alloy, providing 50% increase in flexibility from its previous generations. Samsung is yet to confirm the price and release date for customers in China. The phone has been announced in China and it is unlikely that the company will be launching the phone in other global markets.

Thunder and Carmelo Anthony are 'circling each other'
For the Thunder to acquire Anthony, a 10-time NBA All Star, they'd need to trade one of their players to free up salary cap space. Several reports indicate that Anthony has his sights set on joining Chris Paul and James Harden in a Houston Rockets uniform.

Mahmoud Abbas suspends 'all levels' of relations with Israel
The Palestinian charge that Israel is hampering Muslim access to the Temple Mount is contradicted by facts on the ground. Israeli police said the weapons were smuggled into the holy site which was then used as the launchpad for the attack.

Republicans who voted against ObamaCare 'straight repeal'
Their "no" votes signaled that the so-called "clean repeal" bill did not have the support from key Republican senators. Sullivan has been a reliable "yes" vote for Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell .

The Samsung SM-G9298 comes with a 2,300mAh battery and can be charged wirelessly too! The handset features a 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture. It also features a hotkey that can be configured according to preference of the user.

The South Korean electronics giant has packed the device with numerous features found in its flagship Galaxy S8 phone. The frontside of the clamshell features a 5-megapixel f/1.9 aperture lens.

As of this writing, it seems that the smartphone may not be available outside of China.

The Samsung Leader 8 has two 4.2-inch Full High Definition Super AMOLED display screens. The device has a 15.9 millimeter (0.62 inch) thickness and it weighs 235 grams (0.52 lbs). The Leader 8 comes with Android Nougat pre-installed, and although it hasn't got Bixby onboard, the Leader 8 does get Samsung Pay support and S Voice. Chances are rare if the new flip phone by Samsung will ever hit the Indian shores.
