While f/1.7 aperture was only starting to gain recent popularity among select flagship handsets, Samsung has just launched a smartphone which boasts of an exclusive f/1.5 aperture. In case you are wondering, lower is better here. A lower aperture translates to clearer pictures in low light situations so this is great news. The smartphone in question is the W2018 and it's a flip phone! Yup, you read that right, Samsung is still holding onto the flip phone formula in China and yes, it's a China exclusive phone unfortunately.
Other specs of the device are more or less in line with major flagship handsets from Samsung and they are as follows.
Twin 4.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED displays
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
6 GB of RAM
64GB of internal storage (a 256GB model could be in the pipelines)
12-MP rear camera/5-mp front camera
2,300 mAh battery
Android 7.1.1 Nougat
Colors: Elegant Gold and Platinum
Price: Possibly close to $2,000 or higher!
