A handful of images surfaced online on Thursday, November 9 showcasing what appears to be Samsung's next-generation dual-screen Android flip phone - and they're making us feel very nostalgic.

Samsung is one of the few companies that still launches flip smartphones. Here are the first leaked images of Samsung's clamshell flagship the SamsungW2018.

Similar to the SM-G9298, the SM-W2018 is also expected to be reserved for the Chinese market, with a price tag of over $2,000. The Korean giant is now preparing to launch a successor to the W2017 that was launched past year.

Some reports last month suggested that the SM-W2018 had already entered testing, and it could run on a firmware with the version number W2018ZCU0AQI9.

According to previous rumours, the Samsung SM-W2018 will bear flagship-level specifications. Both the phone's displays feature slim bezels on the sides, except for the top and bottom.

The back panel has a primary camera module along with LED flash and fingerprint sensor and the body seems to be made of glass. It will supposedly come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. As for imaging, the phone is said to feature a 12MP rear and a 5MP front camera.

As of now, there is no official confirmation about the latest flip phone from Samsung. Just like its predecessor, the W2018 will also come with a large alphanumeric keypad. The 4G LTE-enabled Android-powered smartphone is expected to be fuelled by a 2,300mAh battery.
