Live images of the Samsung SM-W2017 high-end flip phone spotted
Samsung recently announced the Galaxy Folder 2 entry-level clamshell smartphone in China. However, the company is also working on a high-end flip phone codenamed ‘Veyron‘, which we exclusively reported about three months ago. Now, live images of the device have been leaked.
The SM-W2017, which succeeds the SM-W2016, reportedly features a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a USB Type-C port. It also comes with a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus and 4K video recording, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The device comes with what seems to be a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well as a heart rate monitor. Its overall design seems heavily inspired by that of the Galaxy S7. It is also said to feature NFC and Samsung Pay. However, the device will most likely be a China exclusive, and Samsung might not release it in other markets.
