We exclusively reported five months ago that Samsung is working on a high-end flip phone for China codenamed “Veyron.” Since then we have seen countless rumors and leaks concerning this device. We’ve seen all there is to see about this handset in the plethora of leaked pictures that emerged from China and now Samsung has formally launched the W2017 in the People’s Republic.

As expected, the Samsung W2017 has a 4.2-inch external as well as internal Full HD Super AMOLED display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor underneath hooked up to 4GB of RAM. It has 64GB of storage with microSD card support. Aside from a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture that’s capable of recording video in 4K the W2017 features a 5-megapixel camera on the front.

This dual-SIM handset has support for 4G LTE. It measures 127.8 x 61.4 x 15.8mm and weighs 208g all while housing a 2,300mAh battery in its metal body. Additional features include an Always On Display, fast wireless charging, a fingerprint sensor and support for Samsung Pay.

The Samsung W2017 will soon be released in China. Pricing has not yet been confirmed but we expect it to quite expensive, coming in at over 20,000 yuan or almost $3,000, but only Samsung knows right now how much this handset is really going to cost. It’ unlikely that the W2017 will ever be released outside China.
