High-Resolution Renders and Real Life Images of Samsung’s Upcoming Flip Phone Powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC Leaked Online

Samsung is readying a high-end flip phone dubbed as Samsung W2018, which will be released with a model name Samsung SM-G9298. Multiple reports in the past few weeks have claimed that the device will feature high-end hardware. It might sound a bit weird to hear that a clamshell phone in 2017 and that too with top-notch hardware. Nevertheless, Samsung is up for the challenge and is eying to unveil the device sometime around the Galaxy Note 8 launch date.

Today, the SM-G9298 flip phone’s press renders have posted online. Just after the press renders came out, the same source posted few real life images of the device, which matches with the renders. These new renders revealed the device’s design from all angles. The Samsung W2018 will feature a 4.2-inch Full HD display.

Recently, the Samsung Q2018 flip phone paid a visit to Chinese regulatory site TENAA with Snapdragon 821 chip and 6GB of RAM. However, a Chinese report suggested that the phone will indeed have the Snapdragon 835 chip, and 6GB of RAM.

Today’s render suggests that the phone will have a fingerprint scanner placed at the back, below the rear camera module. Contrary to the previous leak, this clamshell phone will have a single camera setup of 12MP at the rear, along with an LED flash.

That said, the rear camera might be the same setup we have seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with dual pixel technology and f/1.7 aperture. However, the front-facing camera is said to be a 5MP unit, unlike the 8MP unit present on the Galaxy S8 duo.

The Samsung W2018 will have a USB Type-C port and 3.5mm headphone at the bottom, along with a single loudspeaker. The Snapdragon 835 chipset will be paired with Adreno 540 GPU, and this phone is rumoured to run Android Marshmallow, sadly. Lastly, the phone will have a mere 2300mAh battery.

As said earlier, Samsung is looking to launch the phone sometime around August 23, but there’s no official word from the company though. This device will never come to India.
