Back to upgrade Samsung is working on an exciting new flip phone with surprisingly high-end specs that’s nicknamed Veyron. The smartphone carrying the code name SM-W2017 could be announced on November 3, according to TechUpdates.
Samsung Veyron will be made available exclusively in China and it’s quite unknown if it will arrive to other countries as well. The smartphone recently received TENAA certification and some of its specs were revealed.
Samsung SM-W2017 or Veyron is said to come with a 4.2-inch Full HD display and run a Snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.15GHz. RAM capacity might reach 4GB on the upcoming device, coupled with 64GB of internal memory which can be expanded to 256GB using a microSD card. The smartphone is also rumored to come with a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Samsung W2017 could have a 12MP rear camera

Other than that, the device might run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and draw power from a 2,300mAh battery. It could also have USB Type-C and support for Samsung Pay through NFC.
The dimensions of the phone also leaked out - the SM-W2017 appears to measure 127.8×61.4×15.8 mm and weigh 205 grams. The smartphone will certainly be more potent compared to its predecessor, the Samsung W2016, which was announced in November last year.
