  • Samsung unveils its high-end W2019 Android clamshell, powered by the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform

After all, the Dual Aperture camera on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 debuted on the W2018 previous year, so it's certainly something to be concerned about if you've been hanging on to Samsung smartphones because of the headphone jack. Sensors on the phone include Fingerprint sensor, Compass/ Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer.

The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage. Currently, the smartphone is launched only in China and is available in the market for a price tag of 18999 Yuan, which when translated to INR comes to 1.9 lakh approx. Samsung's W2019 flip phone is available in China only, for now. Completing the phone's general specifications is a 3070mAh battery.

Samsung W2019 has two 4.2-inch AMOLED displays both sporting full HD resolution. For imaging duties, there is a dual camera setup at the back.


And yes, the W2019 has a traditional keypad and navigation keys when you open it up; the outer display has software navigation keys like recent Galaxy phones.

Samsung announces that the back side of the W2019 is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. Besides, the phone appears to have a plastic body with a metallic finish, though details of the same remain unconfirmed. With clamshell snapped, the phone is about 17.3mm thick. The main camera comes paired with f/1.5 - f/2.4 intelligent variable aperture, while the secondary sensor packs f/2.4 aperture.

On the photography front, the handset offers an identical camera setup that we have seen on the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The phone also supports Full HD slow-motion video recording option at 960 fps.
