One day after a ZTE-made Android flip phone debuted in the US, a higher-end Samsung model has been revealed in China.
The Samsung W2017 is now official, and it looks pretty similar to the model that previously leaked out. The W2017 features a pair of 4.2-inch 1920x1080 Super AMOLED displays, one on the exterior and one on the interior, and the inside also features a T9 keypad, d-pad, and Android navigation keys.
Also included with the W2017 are 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (52.2GB available to the user), and a microSD slot for adding even more storage, and a fingerprint reader. Samsung has included a 2,300mAh battery to power this whole package.
There’s not a ton of info about the W2017’s launch, but it’s unlikely that the device will launch outside of China.
The Samsung W2017 looks like a pretty solid device. While most flip phones offer displays that are pretty small compared to most slab handsets, the W2017’s 4.2-inch screens are actually a pretty good size. The rest of the W2017’s spec list is impressive, too, which makes it even more disappointing that most of us will never get to use one.
Would you carry the Samsung W2017 as your daily driver?
