samsung leader 8 is a smart flip phone that references the noughties

remember back in the 2000s when flip phones were the in thing? well, samsung are bringing it back, and doing so with a modern twist. the ‘leader 8’ smartphone is as equipped as they come, featuring a double full HD super AMOLED screen – one touch display on the front and an additional one on the flipped inside. furthermore, the cell showcases its technological prowess with wireless charging, a dual-core fast focus front and rear camera, and security systems like fingerprint entry.

the samsung ‘leader 8’ smartphone claims to bring fantasy to reality. it does so in a classic clamshell design that uses a high strength aluminum construction to ensure anti-curvature. its sleek black body is complemented with gold buttons, an ‘old school’ keypad, and additional highlights. this helps display its elegant appearance that neither looks as if its stepped right from the noughties or back from the distant future.
