In the past few years, Smartphones have come to a standstill with hardly any big progress to boast about.
The newly launched Samsung W2018 which was unveiled in China may actually change the industry on a different level.
Manufacturers couldn’t find any innovative so far because the brick like design is getting slimmer with better camera but there isn’t any compulsive reason to upgrade your existing model as Android works fine on most devices these days. They are also getting cheaper by the time.
Flagship Grade Flip Phone
Instead of trying to be subtle, Samsung has actually pushed their flip phone W2018 on par with their flagship devices like the Galaxy S8 and the Note 8. They not only made it with the best processor but also integrated an amazing camera which is capable of producing highly impressive image quality.
The camera lens used in the model boasts of a f/1.5 aperture bringing it on par with most flagship smartphones and kind of makes it better in the photography front. The 12-megapixel camera is capable of capturing sharp images even under low lighting conditions making it a reliable device to capture great images.
Compact Yet Usable Design
The new Samsung W2018 sports a compact 4.2-inch display which might look small on the brick phone but it perfectly fits the flip design. The display is full HD making it the best in the market with maximum pixels per inch and providing a crisp output.
Making Retro Stylish Again
A big plus of the new model is that it has made many of the retro features stylish and appealing again. History is always about bringing things from the past and presenting them in a more conventional manner. The designers have picked stuff like the directional pad and a number keypad from the past which adds a touch of uniqueness to the device.
After all, when was the last time you actually had the feel of touching a button when entering a phone number or browsing through the features? The display does support touch screen but it is the ability to use an actual button to get the job done which makes the device a must-have for those looking forward to a change.
For the smartphone industry, this seems to be the key to make their devices interesting again by going back to flip phones and innovations which were not possible decades ago but much easier to implement today.
