Samsung is the only smartphone maker that still sees a future in flip phones and the company is preparing to launch the 2019 edition of its flip smartphone. The South Korean company’s upcoming Galaxy W2019 flip smartphone is no secret and now, new information about the device have originated on TENAA.

According to TENAA listing spotted by Tiger Mobiles, the Galaxy W2019 will feature two 4.2-inch Super AMOLED displays, like its predecessor. The flip phone is expected to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, the same chipset powering Samsung’s flagship devices including the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note 9. There is not much to distill from the TENAA listing but it does reveal that there will be a 3,000mAh battery.

Other details revealed by the listing include dual-SIM support with dual standby. It runs Android and is expected to pack the same dual camera system like the one seen on the Galaxy Note 9 and S9+. Both Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9+ feature a dual rear camera setup with dual 12-megapixel sensors. One of the sensor acts as wide-angle camera while the second one acts as telephoto camera.

The Galaxy W2019 does not seem radically different from its predecessor, the Galaxy W2018. It is also not clear why Samsung is still investing on flip phones while the rest of the industry has given up on that form factor.
