Who said that mobile phones with a flip were a thing of the past? In some markets, such as China, they are still very popular and have a large number of followers. Samsung, for example, always offers in its catalog some terminal of this type focused on a very select public (especially for its high price), such as the Samsung W2018 or the previous model, the W2017.
Now comes his successor, the W2019, which has gone through the TENAA confirming some of its features, such as the two Super AMOLED screens or the 3,000 mAh battery. We also imagine that, like its predecessor, it will boast a great power and, of course, will have a prohibitive price.

Leaving aside its high price, which usually exceeds 2,000, if there is something that characterizes mobile phones with covers, such as the W2018 above or Leader 8, also from Samsung, is its exclusive design and the use of both the best components and of excellent materials. The two mobiles that we have commented, for example, are protected with Gorilla Glass 5 and have a zinc hinge capable of resisting an infinity of openings and closures.
It is very likely, therefore, that the W2019 incorporates these two features, but for now what we know for sure after its passage through the TENAA is that it will have two 4.2-inch Super AMOLED displays, like the W2018, and a 3,000-battery mAh (in W2018 is 2,300 mAh), all in dimensions of 132.9×63.2×17.3 mm.
It is also confirmed that it will be compatible with LTE networks and run under the Android operating system (probably in version 8.1). According to various leaks, also, everything suggests that it will include the same dual camera as the Galaxy Note9 and the S9+, as well as a set of Snapdragon 845 chips instead of the Exynos 9810.
Nothing is known yet about when the W2019 will be announced or what price it will have, but taking into account the cost of the previous models, it is speculated that it will be around CNY 17,000 (about 2,100 euros to change).
