This new handset features dual AMOLED displays, is powered by Samsung's Exynos 7420 SoC next to 3 GB RAM, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The device formerly known as Galaxy Golden 3 back in the days when it was spotted at TENAA is now official, but its name is less attractive - Samsung W2016. However, the device itself is a stylish, high-end dual screen flip smartphone that uses a metal and glass build, offers dual SIM capabilities, as well as wireless charging.

Samsung W2016 has the following highlights:

  • Processor: Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 
  • Display: dual display, 3.9-inch WXGA Super AMOLED inside, 3.9-inch on the back
  • Cameras: 5 MP for selfies, 16 MP main camera
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual SIM dual standby, WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz UI
  • Battery: 2000 mAh
  • Colors: gold, metallic grey

Unfortunately for those interesting, this handset will only retail in China, and its price on that market is around $1,565 USD. Remains to see when and if they decide to launch it internationally, because the W2016 surely has the looks, although its price will be hard to swallow by most fans of the classic clamshell design.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
