After all, the Dual Aperture camera on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 debuted on the W2018 past year, so it's certainly something to be concerned about if you've been hanging on to Samsung smartphones because of the headphone jack. 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.

The U.S. came late to the war, in April 1917, but over 1 1/2 years it became a key player and tipped the scales for the allies. More than 2,000 soldiers are buried at the World War I cemetery, many of whom died in the Battle of Belleau Wood.

It will come in two colour options - Rose Gold and Platinum. On the front is a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. In comparison with the W2018 flip phone, the newly launched smartphone offers a better chipset, cameras and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Samsung announces that the back side of the W2019 is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. The W2019 runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box that has Samsung's own UI on top of it. The device is powered a Snapdragon 845 SoC aided by 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, which is expandable via microSD cards. For imaging duties, there is a dual camera setup at the back. Both feature a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The primary shooter offers a variable aperture ranging from f/1.5-f/2.4. The rear camera setup of the W2019 packs a range of camera features like OIS, 2x optical zoom, 4K video shooting at 60 fps and dual-tone LED flash.
