Samsung W2018 Android flip phone to rock a camera lens with an f/1.5 aperture, wider than the LG V30’s f/1.6

Samsung W2018

Not so long ago, a multitude of photos leaked online giving an even better look at Samsung’s upcoming Android flip phone, SM-W2018.

The Samsung W2018 looks exactly like a traditional flip phone that features two display screens located on the two sides of the phone’s top module. You also come across a standard keyboard with 15 keys alongside a circular pad that is flanked by capacitive buttons above it, just like the current model. From the look of things, the Android flip phone will ship with two 4-inch display screens, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor mated with a massive 6GB RAM alongside 64GB of expandable storage.

As expected, the Samsung W2018 will ship with Android Oreo out of the box enhanced with the company’s Samsung Experience skin. According to reports, the Android flip phone will stick to a 12MP camera on the back alongside a 5MP shooter on the front, with the main shooter backed by a dual-tone LED flash.

Now, in a new development, it’s emerging that Samsung W2018 will ship with the widest lens on a smartphone yet. To date, the phone with the widest aperture is the LG V30, whose main sensor has an aperture of f/1.6. Apparently, the Samsung flip phone will ship with an f/1.5 aperture lens, making it the only one on the market. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of this report, which means you should take it with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile, there’s still no word on whether Samsung W2018 will make it out of China. Previous models have remained exclusive to the market, including the current Samsung W2017.
