Samsung W2108 Flip Phone Launched In China

Samsung W2018 Flip Phone Goes Official With Dual Display, F/1.5 Aperture 12 MP Camera

Today, during a launch event in China Samsung unleashes it new high-end flip smart phone, called the Samsung W2018, reported first by the GizmoChina.

The aperture F1.5 implies that all the more light can enter the sensor at the time of shutter click which implies incredible execution and picture quality in low light. The front display is a High Definition Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (HD AMOLED) display, and the inner display is in full HD, as well. The W2018 is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with Adreno 540GPU. Many of the W2018's specs are on par with the S8 and Note 8, with one exception: the camera lens. This is by far the fastest chip available in the market, and power smartphones like the OnePlus 5, LG V30 and others.

Samsung collaborated with China Telecom and announced this new Flagship Clamshell device in the market.

Loyal Samsung fans may be waiting for the Galaxy S9 but there's also a new flip phone to look forward to. The 12-megapixel camera is equipped with Optical Image Stabilization. The flip phone also comes with Samsung's AI-assistant Bixby with added support for the Chinese language. The standard edition comes with 64 GB of internal storage and the premium edition offers 256GB of internal storage. The back panel of the phone features Gorilla Glass and it features a zinc alloy biaxial hinge. What is clear is the device's premium price: the W2017 costed around $3,000, and it's expected that the W2018 will be priced similarly. The body of the handset is made out of metal and glass and measures 132.2 x 63.2mm, with a weight of 247 grams. Let's first talk about the flip first. Under the hood, it has a 2300mAh battery to keep the device alive. The W2018 is the 10th-anniversary edition of W-lineup smartphones. The Samsung W2018 also has directional keys set above a classic numerical keypad. The device supports dual SIM dual standby using the hybrid SIM slot. However, this might not be everyone's cup of tea and the main logic behind this remark is the form factor.
