Flip Phones are back for good!

Let’s recap our knowledge. Samsung’s SM-W2017 is a high-end Android powered clamshell with modern features and software, packed in an older form factor (flip-phone).

Earlier this month, the phone with codename “Veyron” was cleared by the FCC in the US, and now it got a greenlight from China as well. With these steps cleared, now Samsung is expected to unveil the phone on November 3rd.

It carries a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution of 1080×1920 which is the sweet spot for mobile phones. It doesn’t suck too battery and it has good pixel count. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 820 SoC with Quad-Core 2.15Ghz CPU. That display on top is run on Adreno 530 GPU and it has 4Gb of RAM alongside a 64Gb native storage chip. If you are heavy on the storage side, you can expand it to 256Gb with a microSD card. It holds a 5MP selfie camera, and big 12MP rear camera for the beautiful panoramic shots. To keep it working you have a 2300mAh battery and you use all this hardware with the Android 6.0.1 – Marshmallow.

Price, availability and much more details about the SM-W2017 should be available in a few weeks.
