Samsung may be working on a successor to its high-end W2017 flip phone. Earlier today, a handset — dubbed the W2018 — was spotted on Chinese telecommunication authority TENAA’s online database.

The documentation reveals that the W2018, which carries the model number SM-G9298, sports two 4.2-inch Full HD displays, a Snapdragon 821AB chipset, 4GB of RAM, a 12MP camera and a 2,300mAh non-removable battery.

Overall, it’s a pretty minor upgrade from its predecessor (in fact, the only thing that’s changed is the processor), leading many to believe that it’s a revamped model of the W017 for the European market, and not a successor.

While that could be the case, it’s unlikely seeing as people actually want to purchase high-end Android clamshell smartphones in China and South Korea, but demand appears to be non-existent in countries like England and France.
