Hi Tanyar123,

 

you need to backup your messages first in the settings on WhatsApp:

Touch the three little dots top right corner > Settings > Chats > chat backup.

Then when you have got the new phone and have installed Whatsapp it's easy to reinstall, don't forget google can do this for apps and emails as well

Hi, yes, you will. You need to do recover. The ease way to do that - is to use bluestacks, connect your phone to pc and sync. If you will have questions - write to me, I will explain.

A rather long winded way when Whatsapp lets you do it easily without additional software.
