It looks like there’s still a huge demand for flip phones in China, as Samsung keeps on making one as an exclusive device for the said country.
The new Samsung W2019 smartphone, just like its predecessors, will offer a couple of powerful specs inside a nostalgic clamshell form-factor.
Other than that, the W2019 also brags two displays. It sports a 4.2-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen on the inside, while the same screen spec is seen on the outside, in case you don’t want to use its physical keys.
Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the chipset that’s also running on most conventional flagships today. It’s then backed with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of expandable storage.
Despite being a for-professionals device, the Samsung W2019 still comes with a fancy pair of cameras. It brags a 12-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.5-f/2.4, and another 12-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens. That’s the same setup that we saw on the Galaxy S9+.
As stated earlier, the W2019 is targeted to business professional. Hence, it has a premium design that’s built on an anodized aluminum with premium glass on front and back.
