Samsung is about to launch a new version of its flip phone. Does this solution in 2019 still make sense? Would you buy this product? Before you answer – look at the pictures.
SM-W2019, or another version of the phone with a flap
In a few weeks Samsung should launch a new version of its flip phone. Its code name is SM-W2019 and now we can find a lot of photos of this device on the web. Nothing was hidden that we would not be interested in, so we can see the equipment in full glory now. It looks like the SM-W2019 will be very similar to last year's SM-W2018 model . The Korans have still not revealed when exactly the premiere of this model will take place. However, we already know for sure that we will not buy this phone in Poland . By default, it is only sold in South Korea and China, and this time nothing will change. Why is this smartphone only available in Asia? Well, this is not a very popular model, which is why Samsung does not introduce it to other markets.
SM-W2019 – specification and photos
The SM-W2019 has already obtained the appropriate certification of Chinese agencies. This suggests that his premiere may take place before the end of this year. Last year's model debuted in December, while in the current situation it will probably happen again. The flip phone will receive two Full HD AMOLED displays. The Snapdragon 845 processor will appear under the hood, and a double camera will be found on the back cover. The SM-W2019 should be on the shelf of premium devices. We see clearly that it has been made of metal and has a solid housing. From the photos we can conclude that in fact the feeling when using this device is to reflect high quality. Interestingly, however, despite the thick casing of the phone – it's vain to look for a 3.5mm mini-jack. The operating system of this device will probably be Android 8.1 Oreo, and in the future it may get an update to "nine". However, this is not certain.
Phone with a flap? No thanks.
Is it in the slowly ending 2018 year, and it is safer to say even that in 2019 – would you decide on a phone with a flap? If I had to answer this question myself, I would thank you without thinking. The only phone with a flap that was somehow unique is the Motorola RAZR, whose era has long since gone. The mere fact that the SM-W2019 will be sold only in Asia suggests two things. First of all, they are still eager for classic solutions with slightly improved capabilities (here, it's worth to put in a case of even the Nokia 3310). Secondly, the lack of sales of such devices in other markets suggests that these are not popular solutions at all. Thirdly, Samsung still does not let go and it could have abandoned the creation of more models with a flap, which in comparison to the previous ones are not different from each other. It's nice, however, that in the era of smartphones a handful of people interested in other solutions still have the opportunity to choose a device such as the model with a flap. Source
