Samsung's new phone with model number SM-W2016, which is believed to be the Galaxy Golden 3 flip phone, may come soon as it has been certified by Chinese telecommunications governing body Tenaa.

The South Korean electronics giant is yet to reveal anything about the flip device, forget about revealing its release date, but it could be launched soon if its Tenaa's certification is any indication.

It may even come before the upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7 that is expected to see the light of day in January 2016.

However, one has to take the report with a pinch of salt as Samsung is yet to announce it officially.

According to a report by Mobipicker (via Phone Arena), the Galaxy Golden 3 (SM-W2016) has been certified by TENAA and its listing has claimed that it will sport a 3.9-inch display with 768×1280 pixel resolution.

Samsung device with model number SM-W2016 was also spotted on Zauba, a website that keeps track of imports and exports in India, last month and it was meant for "testing purpose". The listing indicates 3.9-inch display and a price tag of Rs 26,725. However, price could differ when it hits the store.

On the other hand, details of SM-W2016 listed on GFXBench benchmarks as reported by TechGrapple (via GSM Arena) say that it will sport a 4.6-inch display with 1280 X 720 pixels resolution, and a dimension of 120.4x61x15.1 (mm) and weigh 204g.

The listing went on to claim that the device will be powered by Exynos 7420 SoC clocking at 2.1 GHz Exynos, run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, come packed with 64GB internal storage and 3GB RAM, and house a 15 MP main camera and a 4.7 MP secondary snapper.
