According to PC Tablet site out of India Samsung is working on a flip phone with flagship-grade specs. This is quite strange considering that flip phones are rarely seen, and if so are usually found in an Asian country. This particular flip phone has insides comparable to devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7, and while we don’t know anything of its looks, we do know quite a bit about it.

Motorola Moto M

Details surfacing this week indicate Motorola may be readying a Moto M under the model number of XT1663. Spotted on some benchmark sites a few weeks back, it has the makings of a more compact smartphone experience.
