South Korean tech gurus have just concluded with the launch of a brand new smartphone dubbed Samsung W2018. The new top-end Android flip phone has been released in China and it comes as a result of the Samsung’s partnership with China Telecom. Apparently, the two companies have been working together to bring a smartphone which has finally arrived.
As it turns out, the W2018 is the successor to the W2017 that was released last year, offering a dual-display configuration and a fingerprint sensor.
Talking about specs, the Samsung W2018 packs two 4.2-inch AMOLED display consoles paired with full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB of RAM speed, the new phone also brings 64GB and 256GB memory variants with an option to expand via a microSD card up to 256GB.
Running Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS, based on the company’s skin, the W2018 features Bixby virtual assistant support in Chinese.
In the camera department, the smartphone bears a 12-megapixel camera on the back tagged with a largest, f/1.5 aperture lens. The camera also brings an optical image stabilization (OIS) support to reduce blurs and supports 4K recording. At the front area, the device comes with a 5-megapixel sensor tagged with f/1.9 lens and full-HD (1080p) support.
Fitted with a 2300mAh battery and fingerprint technology, the device also comes with connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C.
As per design, the handset is offered in a 3D glass and metal design. It is expected to roll out in Gold and Silver color variants.
The price of the handset is still yet to be revealed by the company, so interested buyers might have to wait a while until the company makes a statement.
