The handset has been spotted on Chinese certification website TENAA which suggests that the SM-W2019 will come powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It is said to come with two 4.2-inch Full HD resolution AMOLED displays, dual rear cameras and run on Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. It is likely to be powered by 3,000mAh battery and ditch the 3.5mm jack, making it a first for Samsung. Rumors also suggest that the dual camera setup will have a 12-megapixel primary sensor and will come with dual aperture modes.
While Samsung wanted to be the first company to showcase a Samsung flip smartphone, US-based company Royale FlexPai has beaten the South Korean tech giant and launched the world’s first foldable smartphone — FlexPai.
The company is claiming it to be the first foldable smartphone but actually its a tablet with a 7.8-inch display. However, the screen size gets reduced to 4-inch once it is folded. The display is produced by Royale and it is an AMOLED display. The smartphone comes with Android 9.0 Pie operating system out-of-the-box. The company has priced the foldable smartphone at $1300.
