There was a time when the flip and the slider smartphone were the craze among the smartphone users, receiving calls by flipping over the screen and the mic positioned just near my lips and the speaker placed perfectly on my ear provided some amount of joy. But since the last few year the Flip smartphones were nowhere to be found, they were replaced by the similar looking bar smartphones every where and now Samsung has taken up the job of getting the ‘Flip’ form factor once again in the smartphones with its clam shell smartphone, the Samsung W2016 Clamshell phone.
The Samsung W2016 had spent its own share of time in the rumor mill and we had also spotted the device on the TENAA listings on which the smartphone was said to come with the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 name.
It is now that the smartphone has been listed on the official website of Samsung China but sadly the listing does not provide much details of what the smartphone has to offer under the hood so we have to depend on the information provided in the TENAA listings for this.
Samsung W2016 Smartphone Launched with Dual Flip Screen, Check Samsung W2016 Review, Specs
The Samsung W2016 features Dual displays and both the exterior and the interior screens are sized at 3.9 inches. The inner as well as the outer displays have super AMOLED screens and both have a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels.
The Samsung W2016 is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor that is clocked at 2.1 GHz, and this is coupled with 3GB of RAM. The smartphone is said to offer 64GB of internal storage. What really interests me is that this foldable dual screen smartphone from Samsung boasts of the same specs as we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S6, which too was a wonderful phone, you can check the Samsung Galaxy S6 review from here.
Even in the camera department Samsung has tried to not leave the smartphone weak, it has the same 16 MP image sensor that they have used on all their latest flagship high end smartphones (Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Note 5), and on the front too the W2016 has the 5 MP shooter. This Samsung clamshell phone will be made available in two color options; gold and silver. The Samsung Fold Smartphone W2016 will be running the Android v5.1.1 with the TouchWiz UI on top.
