The W2019 flip phone has just been launched in China, and as of now, there are no words if the phone will hit other markets or not. It is expected to be priced above CNY 10,000 (approximately Rs 1,04,450).

Unlike older flip phones, Samsung's new W2019 flip phones comes with premium design and flagship-level specifications. The South Korean major is yet to confirm the price of the smartphone, but we do know that it will be exclusive to China Unicom.
