Check out Samsung's high-end Android flavored clamshell wearing Rose Gold
Samsung's high-end Android powered clamshell phone, the SM-W2017, has plenty of features that you probably never thought you'd see with this form factor. We're talking about things like a fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor, back and front-facing cameras, a powerful Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash memory. In addition, the phone sports a Type-C USB port, and support for Samsung Pay.

We've seen the phone in Gold, and today images have surfaced of the device dressed in Rose Gold. Even though Samsung has yet to officially introduce the SM-W2017, there is talk that the device has been spotted at some Huaqiang Bei retail outlets in China. Rumors have the phone priced at an outlandish $1,500 USD.

We don't expect Samsung to offer this model outside China, although we would expect that there is some demand for a high-end  Android powered clamshell in the U.S., even if just for nostalgic reasons. The SM-W2017 melds yesterday's popular form factor with the capabilities available from today's smartphones.

I know that you know Samsung had Rose Gold products before Apple. Do why are you making a choice to be a complete and uttered fool, when you don't even have to be. You have to a complete to know the truth and facts, and yet say something to the contrary. Whatever your agenda is, give it a rest already.

Maybe it's Allen that has it wrong in the article. He should had said pink gold but then it wouldn't had been a jab at Samsung. Yes Samsung did call it pink gold but it is more of a rose gold then apples. Apples is pink.

Colors are not important for Samsung, it will be black after exploding.
