As expected, Samsung has launched its high-end clamshell phone at an event today. The event was held in Xiamen, China and celebrated the 10th anniversary of the W series and 25th anniversary of Samsung in the Chinese market.
As far as configuration is concerned, the Samsung W2018 will sport dual 4.2-inch Super AMOLED displays with Full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The smartphone boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 clubbed with 4GB of RAM. The device is expected to come in a single storage variant with 64GB of internal storage which can support MicroSD card up to 256GB.
On the rear, it sports a single 12MP camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP front-facing camera with a f/1.9 aperture for selfies and video-call. The phone can record 4K video with the main camera at 30 fps. To keep the device running, it packs a 2300mAh battery, and boots up on older Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Touch wiz on top.
The handset’s base variant is available in Black, but there are also limited edition units in Gold and Silver. The basic variant costs a mind-blowing 15,999 Yuan ($2418/€2026/Rs.155947) and it would be sold on eCommerce websites JD and TMall.
