You might not know it, but Samsung has been making foldable phones for years now. And by ‘foldable’ we mean the original foldable phones, aka flip phones, aka flip phones. Long stated after the original X-Files run ended, Samsung continues to make such blasts of the past for one market: China. Although he sometimes sells them in Korea as well. This year is no exception and, in fact, the SM-W2019 premium flip phone could put other premium anti-reverse phones to shame. At least in the price.
To be fair, the Samsung W2019 is everything you would expect from a premium 2018 smartphone, despite the name. It runs on the latest Snapdragon 845 with 6GB of RAM and 128 or 256GB of internal storage that’s always expandable. There are two 12-megapixel sensors on the back, one with its dual lens with f / 1.5-2.4 aperture and another with a 2x optical telephoto lens. There’s also a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as there’s really no other place for it anywhere else.
Like the foldable phone prototype, the W2019 has two screens, except neither actually folds. They’re both 4.2-inch 1920 Ã 1080 screens, so there’s no room for jealousy. No Infinity type display either. Considering two displays and high specs, the 3,070mAh battery feels a bit limiting.
From the specifications to the materials used, the Samsung SM-W2019 leaves no doubt that this is a premium phone, even if its styling comes from the distant past. And like any premium phone, it should come with a premium price. About 10,000 RMB, about $ 1,400, a price that even the Galaxy Note 9 dares not reach.
