Samsung has released a new clamshell smartphone specifically for the Middle Kingdom. This is the flagship model with the appropriate filling. November 9, at a special event in China, Samsung unveiled a new premium smartphone called W2019. The novelty, made in the form of a clamshell, has replaced the Samsung W2018 released in December last year.

The Samsung W2019 has several undeniable advantages over its predecessor. This is not only a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, on which many of the 2018 flagships are based but also a side fingerprint scanner and dual main camera. Like the Samsung W2018, the new smartphone has two sensory Super AMOLED displays: one on the outside and one on the inside. Both screens have Full HD resolution. The Samsung W2019 also has an alphanumeric keyboard and a special button for accessing the Bixby voice assistant. To the disappointment of some users, the smartphone has lost a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.

The Samsung W2019 is clad in a metal-framed housing, and its back panel is covered with durable Corning Gorilla Glass. Due to the folding design, the smartphone turned out to be quite heavy and thick.
