#Samsung did not particularly have a great 2016; all credits go to its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. The South-Korean technology giant, however, has been making up for the lost time since the beginning of this month. The firm began this year with a blast, by introducing its flagship smartphones Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The device-manufacturer carried its lead forward by launching its mid-range category of smartphone i.e. J7 and J7 Pro. Following which, the company has been busy preparing for the launch of its next-generation high-end device, Galaxy Note 8. Several reports indicate that the smartphone is going to be unveiled on 23rd August at Samsung’s ‘Unpacked’ event.

Apart from this, Samsung has also long been working on a #Flip Phone. The device has finally been launched by Samsung. The company unveiled their latest innovation at an event in China just yesterday. The device has been described by the company as “#Leader,” and is expected to be introduced in other markets in the following months.

Specs and features

According to several reports, the latest flip phone by Samsung serves as the successor to the company’s W2017 device. The smartphone comes with several enhancements, especially in terms of camera and the device’s processor.

Camera-wise, the handset also features a 12-megapixel rear camera accompanied with a 5-megapixel front shooter as well. Both the sensors further come equipped with a f/1.7 aperture on the rear end and f/1.9 aperture on the front side.

No Bixby digital voice assistant

Samsung has also added several other additional features to the flip phone in order to enhance the smartphone experience, such as the Samsung Pay app, the Secure Folder app, and the S Voice application that allows users to experience most of the device’s functionality to the maximum. The device also further sports a fingerprint scanner on the rear end of the device, right in the middle of the camera sensors and the official Samsung logo as well. Much to the disappointment of many, the device doesn’t come with Bixby digital voice assistant’s support.
