Samsung said to prep a powerful flip Android, codenamed Veyron
Remember that thin and elegant clamshell that is supposedly the successor of Galaxy Folder which popped up in an import database last week? Well, that's not the only flipper heir that Samsung has in store for us.
Rumor has it that it is also working on a high-end one, coded SM-W2017, and by high-end we mean something with Exynos 8890 chipset, and a 12 MP camera main, as well as 5 MP front cameras, possibly the same that are on the Galaxy S7. It will likely be a successor to the SM-2016 that Samsung unveiled last year, which, too, had an Exynos processor, and top-shelf internals for the time, such as 3 GB RAM and a 16 MP camera.
Now, why would you need such a powerful chippery for the alleged 3.9" HD Super AMOLED display on the W2017, you'd ask? Well, because there will reportedly be two such screens on the phone, and they need to be lit, you see. The rest of the specs are shrouded in mystery, but, considering that the speculation is for Samsung to call this puppy "Veyron" internally, it will likely have a respectable amount of horse power under the hood.
As for the exterior, the source indicates that the upcoming Veyron flip will be clad in glass and metal, just like the recent high-end phones from Samsung. Unfortunately, the souped-up Android clamshell will likely be destined for Asia, so you will have to import if you want what is shaping up to be the most powerful smart flip so far.
