The world might have moved to full screen devices but the flip phones can never go out of fashion. If you were waiting for a high-end Android smartphone featuring the old school clamshell design, Samsung's upcoming phone might be your best bet.
As per a report on Sammobile.com, Samsung's upcoming handset will sports a clamshell design and will offer the latest high-end processor paired with a massive 6GB of RAM.
The upcoming Samsung device- SM-W2018 is expected to run on the latest Snapdragon 835 CPU paired with 6GB of RAM. We believe Samsung wants to make sure you get the old school user experience without missing on the latest technology. The news came forward after a Twitter tipster @mmddj_china revealed the information.
It is also said that the upcoming phone will have steep price-point and will sports a 4.2-inch Full HD display. We believe Samsung will incorporate an AMOLED panel to offer vibrant colour reproduction.
As far as mobile photography is concerned, the smartphone might offer a 12MP rear-facing camera equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a 5MP selfie shooter. The device in discussion will have 64GB internal storage and will be backed by a 2,300mAh battery unit. The battery size does not complement the other high-end features of the handset but a smaller display might help it in running for a longer period.
Besides, it is not the first time we have come across news regarding Samsung's clamshell phones. Recently a Samsung flip phone with the model number SM-G1650 appeared on the Chinese certification site, TENAA. The images showed that the SM-G1650 sports a camera on the rear along with an LED flash and the handset featured a full touch screen with a basic flap design.
It is quite early to say if the new clamshell device from Samsung will make it to the Indian market but if it will, there will be some potential buyers ready to spend to experience the old good days of flip phones.
