Bringing retro back in fashion in the new smartphone ages, Samsung adds yet another feather to its Galaxy cap with the Golden, a dual-screen smartphone.
Double of Everything
Two Super AMOLED 3.7-inch screens are what the Golden has to offer that is reminiscent of the clamshell design that was very popular. The design allows you to access the screen of the phone when it is open and when it is closed as well. While this is very functional for power users, the flip design is very stylish and is sure to garner more than just a few glances. Double the screen space, double the fun.
The screen also has large font and icons which are easy on the eye and great in design.
Packed with a 1.7 GHz MSM8930 Pro dual core processor and 1.5 GB RAM that phone is perfect for matching up to the speed at which you function. Lag is a thing of the past while you play your favorite game with crystal clear graphics and awesome performance.
Operating on an Easy Note
The phone runs on the Android v4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system with a TouchWiz overlay which is very easy to operate without being condescendingly simple – smart meets intuition. It also comes with an Easy Mode for beginners to get used the features on the phone.
Capturing the Moment
The smartphone sports an 8 megapixel primary camera with a 1.9 megapixel secondary camera that comes in handy for selfies. Together, the cameras ensure that not an important moment goes by without being captured in clear, vivid tones.
Connectivity Options Galore
The Golden comes with Wi-Fi support to ensure that you can browse the web at blazing fast speeds apart from USB and Bluetooth support as well. It also has a memory that can be expanded up to 64 GB that ensures that you have more than enough space for everything you will ever need.

I read the price as ₹4990. I was puzzled why the reviews were like that. The specs met with that price.. Then i read the price again... Ha ha ha... Its hilarious.. Does Samsung think customers are dumb as their products are.. Well i can't stop my laughter on seeing that price tag for this crap.. Samsung haven't you guys learned mathematics? Zero does have value when comes at the other end. This thing should be priced ₹4990. Lets see if there are any morons in India to buy it at this price...
PS: Flipkart please provide a ZERO star option too while rating a product.
i think samsung has tied up with Apple to decide the ridiculous pricing that they can keep for phones! Note 3 costs 4-5k lesser than this crap! WTH SAMSUNG?have you lost the interest in keeping customers happy?
Amazing how they can fit 3.7 inch screen two of them and still keep weight down this low &
i just cannot believe the logic of such high price on base of SD400 and Aderno 305Gpu only good is it got 1.5GB ram but i bet Samsung phone will show 768 or 900 mb used and still 4.2 platform i feel it wont upgrade also to 4.3 or 4.4 practically i feel a piece of waste shit again from samsung battery is also 100% laggard such big phone and only 1850 mAh ohh noo no noo from me to phone
ohh yes it may be a bliss for flip phone lover on basis of spec sheet i give 5 on 10
Bozos!! Samsung are you sick?? 'm sure you are not taking consumers granted..are you? I mean what idea came to your mind to launch such kind of crap in the market..the price is hilarious :D.
The flip phone dual sided having baba adam ke zamane ka keypad, tuntun size. This is not what consumers need. You guys are like Akshay kumar launching new models every weeks like his movies. Just for the sake of being in the market you guys have to launch something and this is that something but not a phone that we need.
Model sucks! what is your purpose of having this dual screen when a user can do things on a single screen much fast with sliding gesture. Oh! you thought of having something like blackberry, why not a keypad on an android smart phone?? the design sucks the way it opens..seems like a hotdog.
What a steep price tag!! BUY IT ON YOUR OWN RISK! O!! You are silver spoon!! buy something else baby and be happy :)
