Samsung has launched a brand new flip-phone Samsung W2016 in China. The most recent Android based dual-display flip-phone is listed on their China website. The pricing information is yet to be confirmed by Samsung.
This dual-display flip phone has a 3.9-inch Super Amoled touchscreen on the outside and also the inside, both having a WXGA 768 X 1280 resolution.
The Samsung W2016 comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop using the TouchWiz. As you can see on the listing, it seems like this mobile has been built out of glass and metal including a T9 keyboard.
It also has dual-sim capability enabling connectivity to 2G, 3G and 4G LTE. Since they listed this mobile on China’s website, it is now confirmed that this device is supported by mobile networks in China. We can anticipate the Korean organization to release the phone with increased mobile carriers in China.
Samsung W2016 packs a 1.5GHZ Octa-Core processor along with 3GB RAM. It comes with a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. This handset comes with 64GB of internal storage. There is no possibility to expand the storage. This handset has a 2000mAh battery and as per their listing, W2016 can charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes. Other connectivity options include, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and micro USB.
Handset is 120.4mm tall, 61mm wide and 15.1mm thin and weighs 204 grams.
