A new clamshell smartphone from Samsung has gone today in China. The phone has been named as Samsung W2016, and we saw a sneak-peak of the phone when it had passed through TENAA. However, the phone did shed the Galaxy Golden 3 name for a shorter W2016.
The Samsung China website has listed the phone officially today, but the spec list isn’t proper yet. This is why we have nothing but the TENAA specs to go on to until Samsung decides to unveil the details officially.
According to TENAA, the Samsung W2016 gets two 3.9-inch Super AMOLED touchscreens with a resolution of 1280 x 768. The phone sports a 16MP shooter at the rear along with a LED flash, while a 5MP snapper sits at the front. Powering the phone is the Exynos 7420 SoC coupled with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The W2016 gets a 2,000mAh battery, dual-SIM support, and 4G+ connectivity. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed, and the phone supports fast as well as wireless charging.
The Samsung W2016 gets a metal and glass body and weighs 204g. The phone does not come cheap and is priced at CNY 9,999 (approx. €1,470 or $1565). As of now, the phone is only available in China via China Mobile, and we do not expect the phone to be officially sold anywhere else in the world.
