If you thought that clamshell phones were a relic of the past, you are in for a surprise because Samsung is busy working on what is believed to be the Galaxy Golden 3, sporting similar internals to the Galaxy S6. It carries the model number SM-W2016, and like its predecessors, will likely only be available in select Asian countries.
Much like the Galaxy S6, the SM-W2016 (Galaxy Golden 3) sports the octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, ARM Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and runs Android 5.1.1. Unlike the S6 though, the clamshell only has a 4.6-inch display with a paltry 1280 x 768 resolution. The combination of such a low-resolution display with such a high-end processor and GPU should result in the Galaxy Golden 3 flying high in the benchmarks.
According to the GFXBench report, the Galaxy Golden 3 also features a 16MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera and 64GB of internal storage. You can check out the full specifications below.
