Samsung's high-end Android flip phone may sport SD-835 and 6GB of RAM

Samsung's W-series phones are high-end handsets with a flip form factor. The melding of the old and new works out just fine for those who miss their old device, but want to have the most up to date software and specs. The SM-W2018 is expected to be the latest W-series handset coming from Samsung. Back in May, the phone was certified by China's regulatory TENAA agency. At the time, the handset was powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset and carried 4GB of RAM inside. Earlier this month, the manual for the phone leaked revealing that wireless charging will be a feature on the phone.

Today, a tweet sent out by a tipster out of China tells us to expect the SM-W2018 to carry specs that are even more high-end than originally thought. According to the tweets, the flip phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. That means we should expect an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. In addition, the phone will sport 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage according to this leak.

The SM-W2018 features a pair of 4.2-inch screens, both with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. A 2300mAh battery keeps the lights on, and there is a 12MP camera in back with a 5MP selfie snapper in front. Our original information stated that Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. If so, that might be related to the form factor. We will know more when the phone is unveiled, which should happen in the near future.
