Samsung W2019 flip phone launched with dual AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 845

Dubbed as W2019 it's an upgrade to the last year's W2018 device and manages to put nearly every smartphone to shame. There is a fingerprint reader and a dedicated Bixby button on the sides of the smartphone. The W2018 flip phone was powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset, while the successor device, W2019, comes packed with Snapdragon 845.

According to the pre-order listing on JD, the 128GB version of the phone is priced at CNY 18,999 which roughly equivalent to RM 11,420. 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. The sale date is yet to be announced by the company.

It will come in two colour options - Rose Gold and Platinum.

The device features two Super AMOLED displays - the external one sports a 4.2-inch panel with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. Completing the phone's general specifications is a 3070mAh battery. Unlike the W2018, the W2019 features a dual camera system on the back.

Palestinians, Hamas commander killed by Israeli army in southern Gaza Strip
Medics and Hamas officials said at least seven people were killed, four of them militants, including Hamas commander Nour Baraka. Netanyahu said the Israeli security establishment supported the move and that ministers in his security cabinet approved it.

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. The rear side comes with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection. Overall, the phone measures 132.9 x 63.4 x 17.3mm and weighs 257 grams.

On the photography front, the handset offers an identical camera setup that we have seen on the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The primary shooter offers a variable aperture ranging from f/1.5-f/2.4.

The Samsung flip phone has dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back with 2x optical zoom support. The phone features anodised aluminium body with diamond-cut finish.
