The Samsung SGH-A167 is an AT&T exclusive flip phone released some time after January 2009.

It was sold exclusively under the GoPhone (now AT&T PREPAID) plan, and came in one shade of blue.

One thing of note is that the FCC sample prototype was featured in orange, perhaps a nod to Cingular's color palette.

The phone's slogan on Samsung's website was "this flip is hip."
