We first told you a couple of months ago that Samsung is working on a new flagship flip phone codenamed “Veyron.” Multiple rumors and reports about this device have emerged since then. We have recently seen countless leaked pictures of the SM-W2017 so it no longer remains a mystery. The handset has now received its FCC certification which means that it’s one step closer to launch.
The SM-W2017 is expected to feature a 4.2-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood that’s coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The handset is also expected to tout a 12 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera, a fingerprint sensor on the back, Samsung Pay support as well as a USB Type-C port. The FCC certification can be seen as an indication that Samsung will soon be announcing this device. Since the company rarely releases its flip phones worldwide, it’s quite likely that the SM-W2017 will be limited to the Chinese market.
