Rumours: Samsung developing a hybrid flip smartphone for 2018?


Ah, flip phones. Those were the days before they became almost non-existent thanks to smartphones. But what if I told you that Samsung is actually developing a W-series phone that combines the both of best worlds. Codenamed SM-W2018, the phone will be just like a flip phone but with high-end tech-specs.

According to TENAA, someone has been leaking out some information about the device. It's said to carry a Snapdragon 835 chipset (initially it was 821 only) and even has a 6GB + 64GB memory inside which is quite impressive. However, that cannot be said the same for the display, as you know the limitations - it will only be a mere 4.2-inch but at least it runs in 1080p.

The cameras will be a single sensor for the back and front with 12MP and 5MP respectively. A 2300 mAh battery is on board and Android 6.0.1 will be used. Rumours also have it that a wireless charging feature could make its appearance.
