Samsung may have given up on bezels with the launch of the Galaxy S8 duo and the Galaxy Note 8, but it is not giving up on flip phones just yet. Pictures of the rumoured Samsung SM-W2018 have appeared online, revealing the company is working on the successor to last year's W2017 flip phone.

Samsung is also planning to launch a foldable smartphone next year with dual-display and redesigned user interface. The smartphone is expected to launch under company's Galaxy Note brand.
