Samsung could be working on a successor to its last year's high-end Android flip phone. The handset model numbered SM-G9298 has been caught while making a move through Chinese telecom authority TENAA.

As listed in the TENAA database, the latest flip phone Samsung W2018 features two super AMOLED screen of 4.2in each with 1080p resolution.

It uses a Snapdragon 821AB chip, which is paired with 4GB of RAM. There would be a 12-megapixel rear camera and a five-megapixel camera at the front.

The operating system is noted as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It has a 64GB internal storage, which can be further expanded to 256GB using microSD card. The phone uses a 2,300mAh battery. It weighs 234g and measures 127.7 x 61.4 x 15.7mm in dimension.

Its predecessor Samsung W2017, for a comparison, shares most of the features in common with the upcoming W2018 such as RAM, screen size, internal storage, front and back cameras and even battery. Samsung W2017 is powered with quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor.

Samsung W2017 was a China-bound model only launched in last November. There is no word from the company whether the upcoming version would see a global release. Along with the specs sheet, TENAA has also posted photos of Samsung W2018.
