Version of the “clamshell” allows to combine a physical keyboard with a relatively small size of the gadget.
According to CNET, with reference to the Korean edition of the Digital Daily, “clamshell” will be called the Samsung Galaxy Folder. The gadget will receive a relatively small screen with a resolution of 800 by 380 pixels and a fairly powerful dual-core Snapdragon S4.
