More leaked images of Samsung's high-end Android clamshell are here
When you think of a clamshell design for a handset, you usually aren't expecting a smartphone. And if the voices inside your head are whispering smartphone, smartphone when you look at a clamshell, it usually is an entry-level model that has you obsessed. The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 and the first generation model would be prime examples of that.

But Samsung apparently believes that people are generally nostalgic, and that a high-end clamshell phone could be a winner. Just yesterday, we showed you some live images of such a unit, which has the nickname "Veyron" and carries the model number of SM-W2017. Today, we have some more images of the phone for you to look at.

We expect the Veyron to carry a 4.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset will equip the handset with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. The 12MP rear camera includes PDAF, and the 5MP front-facing snapper handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the hamster wheel spinning is a 2000mAh battery. A fingerprint sensor is included.

We aren't sure if the Veyron is going to be offered in the states, but we can see the interest in a clamshell phone that brings back memories of the Motorola RAZR V3 while having the capabilities of a modern high-end Android smartphone. An unveiling of the SM-W2017 could be just around the corner.
