The SM-W2016 has been spotted once again and now the TENAA listing comes with a photo. Samsung's next flip smartphone will soon join the G9198 Android flip phone and the SM-G9098 dual screen flip phone from the brand. This time, the SM-W2016 has an easy name to remember although no confirmation has been made yet--the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3.
The smartphone recently showed up on GFXBench so we're certain that it will be arriving anytime soon. The TENAA certification is another strong evidence that Samsung is still interested in the clamshell Android phone game. It may be a small market but there is certainly a demand for pretty yet powerful phones.
Rumor has it that the smartphone will feature a 3.9-inch internal and external screen, 768 x 1280 pixel resolution, octa-core 2.1 GHz Exynos 7 processor, Mali-T760MP8 GPU, 3GB RAM, 64GB built-in storage, 16MP main camera, 5MP selfie shooter, and will be powered by Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Sadly, we can't seem to find a microSD card slot. Dimension is set at 120.4 × 61 × 15.1mm while phone weighs 204 grams.
No word on pricing and availability yet so let's wait and see if and when the South Korean tech giant will unveil this flip Android phone. Based on the TENAA images, the device looks different from the past models Samsung released. We'll see.
