Samsung W2017 is barely 9 months and company is preparing for its successor. The Samsung W2018 SM-W2018 was spotted passing through TENAA in last week of May and now a new leak suggests that it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC(System on Chip). This chipset from Qualcomm powers many flagship phones this year and Korean giant is keen to bring it on its new flip phone.
The leak about upcoming Samsung W2018 clamshell phone comes from Twitter user mmddj_china, a leakster, who has a successful prediction history. Apart from Galaxy Note 8 and W2018 is another phone that the company could launch in the fourth quarter of 2017. It’s a new phone by Samsung in the W-Series.

Further, the leak suggests that Samsung’s upcoming flip phone has 6 GB and 64 GB native storage in tow. TENAA listing of the device suggests SM-G9298 to be the model number of the device with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.
To remind you of Samsung W2018 specifications, it’s rumored to feature two 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display(external and internal displays). Both the displays provide a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (full HD).
TENAA listing also suggests the device 12 mega pixel rear camera and 5 mega pixel front selfie camera. We bet that the camera can record 4K 2160p videos, much like its predecessor. It’s 15.9 mm thickness and 234 grams weight reveals that the phone is fairly thick and heavy. In terms of software, it’s expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
After W2014, W2015, W2016 and W2017, it will be the fifth flip phone by the Korean Consumer Electronics giant. The company continues to offer high-end flip phones in an era dominated by touchscreen phones.
Comparatively, there are not many improvements from its predecessor. Samsung’s 2018 flip phone might get an upgrade in terms of internals like processor and RAM as mentioned above.
