Samsung has just released a jaw dropping flip phone-the W2016, and tech heads have dubbed it ‘an S6 trapped in a flip body ‘.
The Samsung W2016 comes with two 3.9-inch 1,280×768 Super AMOLED touchscreens, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie shooter, the Exynos 7420 SoC at the helm, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 4G+ and dual-SIM support, a T9 keypad and a 2,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
It has support for both fast charging and wireless charging. Like Samsung’s top of the line smartphones of 2015, the W2016 is built only with metal and glass.
Coming in gold or silver, the device weighs about 204 grams. It’s also 15.1 mm thick when closed.
For a whooping $1,565 or €1,470, the device is quite pricey compared to its counterparts, but that’s the price you need to pay for style, and a premium quality modernised flip phone.
I’ve always had a soft soft for flip and slide phones and Samsung certainly caught my attention with this one. The phone is so sleeeeeek! Here is hoping the company doesn’t restrict it to Asian markets as speculated, and allows flip phone lovers like yours truly lay hands on one. Check out more beautiful photos below.
