    THE clamshell, or flip, phone is making a comeback, in the form of a shimmering gold smartphone made by Samsung.

    The Galaxy Golden, which runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, sports two 3.7-inch Super Amoled displays - one on the inside and the other, outside.

    It has an 8MP rear camera and a 1.9MP front camera, as well as a 1,820mAh battery, according to Guardian Express.

    The phone also has an FM radio and the Samsung S Health App, and is equipped for the 4G LTE network.

    Targeted for release in South Korea and China, the Galaxy Golden retails at US$700 (S$897).

    The Golden comes hot on the heels of the Samsung Hennessy, which was announced early this month, according to technology- news website Engadget.

    The Hennessy has a pair of 3.3-inch 320x480 touch displays and runs on Android 4.1 on a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU.

    The phone packs a 1,500mAh battery, microSD slot, 5MP rear camera and dual SIM support for CDMA and GSM radios.
