Update : SM-W2016 has been officially announced now with 3.9 inches Super AMOLED HD Display, Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, 64GB ROM, 2000 mAh battery, 16MP rear and 5MP front camera, and it runs Android Lollipop 5.1.1 OS.
Flip Phone is not really in trend, so this model may not reach other countries. Samsung will market this device in China or may be a couple of other Asian countries.
UPDATE: SM-W2014 is expected to be Galaxy Golden 3 (a flip phone), because we have come to know about some old models; SM-W2014 was Galaxy Golden, and SM-W2015 was Galaxy Golden 2.
However, those models were not marketed outside of Korea, but this model has been imported in India. Have a closer look at the highlighted part of Zauba listing image, we have just noticed 3.9 along with model number (SM-W2016,S.S-3.9). Galaxy Golden 2 features a 3.9 inches display, and in Zauba listing it seems to have 3.9 inches display as well. For a flip phone, 3.9-inch display is large enough. It’s little confusing, because GFXBench shows a 4.6 inches display and Zauba has something else. It would be clear once we have more proof on this device, or at least when we see any image of it.
Samsung’s new smartphone SM-W2016 showed up on GFXBench with with Exynos 7420 SoC, but the display size and resolution is little strange. We all know how powerful Exynos 7420 chipset it, probably the best chipset you can find in any Android Smartphone. Exynos 7420 benchmark score surpasses Snapdragon 810, and in terms of multi-core performance it beats even Snapdragon 820 benchmark. However, Snapdragon 820 has improved a lot in single-core performance, but Samsung’s new chip ( Exynos 8890 ) would probably do better in single-core performance.
Samsung SM-W2016 features a 4.6 inches display with 1280 X 720 pixels resolution, 3GB RAM, 64GB ROM, Octa-core 2.1 GHz Exynos 7420 SoC, ARM Mali-T760 MP8 GPU etc.. On GFXBench, Primary camera shows as 15 MP and secondary as 4.7 MP. Most of the time GFXBench shows slightly less pixels for camera, so it would probably has the same camera found in Samsung Galaxy S6; 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera. The device is running on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 OS, but it may arrive with Android 6.0 Marshmallow when they officially announce it.
Those who don’t like large display and enjoy the compactness, would love this 4.6-inch smartphone. Compared to 2K display in Galaxy S6, it should feature at least 1080 pixels display. However, it features better tech specs compared to Sony Xperia Z5 compact with the same display size and resolution.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Mini (SM-W2016) Price Exposure
Samsung SM-W2016 also showed up on the import list on Zauba, that has been imported from South Korea on 6 October, and many time earlier. According to latest data (6 October), its price shows as 26,725 per unit, that is roughly around $412.
This is the first time we have found SM-W2016 model, and we don’t have more details on it, but we expect it to be Galaxy S6 Mini. We will update as soon as we get more information. Stay tuned!
