In China today the manual for the SM-G9298 leaked. This is an Android powered smart "flip" phone that was recently certified in China by the TENAA regulatory agency. There are a pair of 4.2-inch displays, each one carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 821 chipset featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage.

A 12MP camera is found on back with a 5MP selfie snapper in front. Keeping the lights on is a 2300mAh battery, and Android 6.0.1 (!!!) is pre-installed. The SM-G9298 is available in your favorite color, assuming that your favorite color is black.

The SM-G9298 is also known as the W-2018 and has already been certified by the FCC in addition to TENAA. According to the manual, it supports wireless charging. We should see the device unveiled in Asia very soon. If you miss the old days when flip phones ruled the world, but you don't want to lose the capabilities of your smartphone, this would be the handset for you.
