The SM-G9298, an upcoming smartphone from Samsung, passed through FCC two days ago. The device also passed through Wi-Fi Alliance's certification process. Now, a purported image of the device has appeared on the Internet, showcasing us its design for the first time.

As you can see in the image below, there doesn't seem to any sensor above the display. So, it is possible that it is a flip phone, and is meant for the Chinese market. The device reportedly comes equipped with a Snapdragon 821 processor and a wireless charging mechanism.

We think that it's a slightly upgraded version of the SM-W2017, which was launched in China last year.
