The W2019 Android flip phone also includes a Bixby voice assistant integration as well as gives access to the exclusive service that can be accessed with a press-and-hold gesture on the "8" key.

The new W2019 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is paired with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage that can be expanded using microSD cards. As expected, underneath that classic flip phone design is a phone with flagship specs. The W2019 flip phone has just been launched in China, and as of now, there are no words if the phone will hit other markets or not.


It's official: Samsung finally has a smartphone that doesn't come with a headphone jack. The sale date is yet to be announced by the company. The phone is available in Silver and Gold colour options.

As noted, the W2019 is an upgraded version of the W2018 version. On the front is a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. The W2019 comes packed with much powerful hardware and improved software for better user experience. The rear side comes with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection. For imaging duties, there is a dual camera setup at the back. But the smartphone is a rather thick device at a thickness of 17.3mm at its thinnest which is thicker than some laptops available today. The phone comes with two displays and the physical keypad. The phone features anodised aluminium body with diamond-cut finish. Moving to the back, the device has dual 12-megapixel cameras with OIS and 2x optical zoom which records up to 4K resolution at 60fps, and Full HD-resolution slow-motion videos at 960fps. For selfies, there is an 8MP f/2.0 camera sensor.
