Samsung W2019 offers innovative technology based on the S9 series available since the beginning of the year, but as in previous years, it may preview the next generation smartphone series in the Galaxy S. We may see here a configuration, at least for the camera, Thing will also be found on the Samsung Galaxy S10.
W2019: Samsung has reassured its a crazy luxury folding phone
Like Samsung 's W2018 last year, the new W2019 also has two 4.2 – inch displays, all mounted on the outside and inside the lid and the top cover. Both are very high resolution with 1920×1080 pixels and all use of SuperAMOLED screens from the production of Samsung. Unlike most current Samsung current handsets are below the external screen here still the classic Android buttons in the form of capacitive buttons.
In, the action is done using a touch screen or using a hardware keyboard, which basically is used to facilitate hard input of Chinese characters on touch devices. In addition to the buttons for "Back", "Multitasking", "Home" and "Copy", which are performed as hardware buttons, there is also a multi-directional D-tray with an extra button in the middle.
Current current technology in curious form factor
The W2019 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octacore SoC, the sophisticated SoC that can be found on other leading smartphones of 2018, up to 2.8 GHz. It is built with six gigabytes of memory and 128 GB or 256 GB of internal flash memory, based on the UFS 2.1 device and can be expanded with a microSD card slot.
A small display of the future with the Galaxy S10 series probably offers a rear camera unit of the W2019. There are again two 12-megapixel sensors, one of which offers a variable aperture (F / 1.5 – F / 2.4). This is now called "Smart Iris" and should probably be able to select the correct shutter size automatically with the help of artificial intelligence functions. Obviously, this can not be made clear due to our lack of knowledge about the Chinese.
What is certain is that the Samsung Dual Camera W2019 offers dual optical zoom and is capable of recording 4K videos at up to 60 frames per second. Also here is an optical image stabilizer implemented in the hardware. Other features include Bluetooth 4.2, dual band Wi-Fi Gigabit, NFC and USB-C port. Fingerprint reader sits on the side of the case, but Samsung give up with a headphone jack like the previous year.
Speaking of USB-C: The 3.1 Gen1 capable USB port of course is also used for charging, with the battery here offering 3070mAh capacity. Each major technology around the two displays the large battery along with the metal frame ensuring a very high weight of 257 grams. When folded, the W2019 is proud of 17.3 mm thick.
The OS is still Android 8.1 "Oreo" used, with Samsung uses a very custom design. It is also interesting that Klaphandy luxury is sold along with a special subscription service that gives the owner a well heel on request, a car with a driver or other assistance tasks. Samsung W2019 costs 18,999 yuan in China, which is equivalent to 2,410 euros or 2730 US dollars.
