A Chinese leakster had revealed in the previous week that the SM-W2018 would be a flagship smartphone as it would be powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset. He added that the SD 835 chipset is supported by 6 GB of RAM and internal storage of 64 GB. It is expected to carry support for Samsung Pay and wireless charging.

However, when the Samsung SM-W2018 had appeared on TENAA in May, it appeared as a minor upgrade over of SM-2017 from last year that came with specs like Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The TENAA listing of SM-W2018 had revealed that its inner and outer displays of 4.2 inches. The Chinese regulatory body also revealed that the phone features Snapdragon 821 AB chipset and 4 GB of RAM. The other specs of the phone included 64 GB of storage, 12-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel selfie snapper and a 2,300mAh battery. According to the leakster, the SM-W2018 and SM-G9298 are two different flip phones from Samsung.

The Samsung SM-G9298 may launch as Samsung Beyond the world 8 (whatever that means!), claims the Chinese leakster who has leaked the above image of Twitter.  However, there is no information on the specifications  of the phone. The Samsung SM-G9298 has also been certified by FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance in May. There is no information available on the release date of the SM-G9298. However, since it has received several certifications required for launch, its arrival seems to be close at hand.

As far as Samsung SM-W2018 is concerned, it has only cleared TENAA certification in China. It is expected to arrive with an expensive price tag. According to the leakster, the W series phones from Samsung carry expensive pricing because the revenue generated by these phones are donated to the charity.
