Samsung’s flagship flip phone reveals specs on GFXBench

We first told you a couple of months ago that Samsung has a new flagship flip phone codenamed “Veyron” in the pipeline. Since then we have seen many rumors and reports concerning this handset. Quite a few images of the handset have also been leaked online so it’s not like the handset will come as a surprise when Samsung ultimately unveils it. Specifications of the flip phone bearing model number SM-W2017 have been revealed once again, this time on GFXBench.

The benchmark result shows that the SM-W2017 features a 5.5-inch Full HD Always On display with a 2.1GHz Snapdragon 820 processor underneath that’s hooked up to 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera is also listed alongside Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Previous reports have claimed that the SM-W2017 features a fingerprint scanner on the back and that it supports Fast Charging.

Samsung is yet to confirm when this handset is going to be launched and how much it’s going to cost. It normally releases flip phones in just a couple of markets and that might be the case with this new handset as well, even though it has the specs to take on some proper high-end devices.
