Samsung is set to unveil a new Reverse phone Version in China on November 9.
The South Korean giant has sent invites to a launching event scheduled in Wuxi, a town near Shanghai, where it will unveil the SM-W2019 as the successor to the W2018 which was launched in December last year. The W2018 featured two 4.2-inch AMOLED display panels and comprised a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, combined with 6GB of RAM. Lately, a report detailing the W2019 theorized the smartphone could include a Snapdragon 845 SoC. It’s also asserted to be codenamed”Lykan”.
As per the alleged invitation shared from tipster Zyad Atef, Samsung has verified that it is launching the W2019 reverse phone in China on November 9. This new model is going to probably be the successor to this W2018 which debuted last year with two 4.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) AMOLED display panels and a Snapdragon 835 SoC. The last year version additionally had 6GB of RAM, 64GB/ 256GB storage options along with microSD card support, 12-megapixel rear camera detector along with an f/1.5 aperture, 5-megapixel sensor in the front, along with a 2,300mAh battery.

People at SamMobile speculate that the Samsung W2019 will continue the legacy of owning high-end specifications, such as a pair of full-HD AMOLED displays along with the top-end, Snapdragon 845 SoC. The device could have a dual back camera setup together with artificial intelligence (AI) endorsed features such as a Scene Optimiser. Further, there might be Android 8.1 Oreo at the initial stage, although the handset is likely to receive Android 9 Pie later on.
If we believe what was spotted throughout the kernel source code of the Galaxy S9’s Snapdragon variant earlier this season, the W2019 flip phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC. The smartphone can be said to be internally known as”Lykan” and might have a metallic body.
It has been two decades that Samsung has been launching its flip phones in China. The first reverse phone was launched by the company in November 2016 with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, while it attracted the W2018 as its new clamshell design smartphone in November last year. This suggests that the new phone is found on the date given in the invitation together with a Snapdragon 845 SoC.
Details such as the cost and availability of the Samsung W2019 are yet to be shown. We might get some information at the time of the official launching next week.
