The Samsung W2018 has gone through the TENAA, the Chinese equivalent to the FCC of the United States. Thanks to this we have been able to confirm that the terminal is practically finished and that will maintain the lines of design that we saw in the model Samsung W2017.
As we can see from the images the Samsung W2018 is a smartphone with a shell-like finish that rescues the essence of terminals as mythical as the Motorola StarTAC, but with an important update that is noted in quality construction, design and specifications.
At a glance we do not see any major changes to the W2017, so the only major new features are the hardware. Here is a complete list with the basic specifications of the Samsung W2018:
- Dual 4.2 inch screen with 1080p resolution.
- SoC Snapdragon 821 (Snapdragon 820 in model W2017).
- 4 GB of RAM.
- 64 GB of storage capacity.
- Cameras of 12 MP and 5 MP.
- 2,300 mAh battery.
- Android M as operating system.
In general it is a terminal that we can consider as high-end, although it is a little below the current top-end smartphones when using a SoC of the past generation.
Beyond the hardware issue we find it very striking to see that Samsung has not updated the operating system to Android N, a rather negative aspect that should resolve in the final version of the terminal.
There are no details on the price but the W2017 was around $ 2,700 a bargain, so the Samsung W2018 could position at the same level or perhaps a little above.
