Following the announcement of the Galaxy Folder 2 earlier this month, a new Android-powered flip phone made by Samsung has leaked.
Photos of the Samsung SM-W2017 (codenamed "Veyron") have been posted to Chinese social networking site Weibo. The photos show a flip phone with two large screens, one inside and one outside, and a design that’s a bit reminiscent of the Galaxy S7.
When it comes to specs, this SM-W2017 is said to have a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED display, quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, Samsung Pay support, and a rear fingerprint reader. Also said to be included is a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
This SM-W2017 is considerably more high-end than the Galaxy Folder 2 that was recently announced with specs like 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 3.8-inch display. Unfortunately, one thing that the SM-W2017 will likely have in common with the Galaxy Folder 2 is that the W2017 will probably only be available in China, meaning that most of us won’t get the opportunity to use a high-end Android flip phone.
If the SM-W2017 was available to you, would you buy it?
