Samsung's Android flip phone has cleared the FCC

Samsung's Android flip phone is surely getting some attention online and the leaks are also coming more often. Now, the latest bit of information has confirmed the device's existence, as it seems to have cleared the FCC's certification process.

The Samsung flip phone, which we only know as W2018 so far, was spotted on the FCC's website recently, dated 29 November. While there is no guarantee that the device would launch anytime soon, the excitement about a high-end smartphone in this form factor is quite high among tech followers.

From the previous leaks, it is speculated that the W2018 will feature a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. There is no information available about the rest of the hardware specifications of the device, but it should also be of flagship caliber given the powerful processor and memory combination.

The last time Samsung launched an Android-powered flip phone, it was exclusive to its home country of South Korea. It will be interesting to see whether this one gets a global launch now that it has FCC approval in the United States.
