Samsung “Veyron” leaked specs reveal Galaxy Note 7's 12MP camera, 64GB storage

The next Samsung smartphone to feature a clamshell form factor will be a monster specs-wise. The so-called Samsung SM-W2017 is already in the works and is likely to be made official in the next couple of weeks.

If you aren't up to date with Samsung's portfolio of Android smartphones, then you might want to know the South Korean company is one of the few major handset manufacturers that still launches flip phones.

However, the W series is only available in China for the time being. It's also worth noting that Samsung adds just one device per year to the W series, but single device is usually a high-end smartphone.

The new Samsung SM-W2017, codename Veyron, leaked a while ago, but it wasn't until yesterday that we got more details on the phone's actual specs. The upcoming clamshell will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM. Also, it will sport a 4.2-inch display and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard.

Today, new information about the SM-W2017 popped up online, which suggests this will be a clamshell version of Samsung's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series' flagships. AnTuTu lists the flip phone with a 12-megapixel rear camera, which is likely the same that Samsung included in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7 models.

Furthermore, the Samsung SM-W2017 will pack a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 64GB storage. The Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4GB RAM are confirmed once again, but there's no mention of microSD card slot yet. Initial information about the 4.2-inch display did not contain details about its resolution, but AnTuTu states it will be a full HD (1080p) screen.

As expected, the clamshell will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right out of the box, so don't get your hopes up to high, as SM-W2017 won't be Samsung's first Nougat smartphone. 

Since we don't have a picture of the upcoming clamshell, we've included below several images of the previous W2016, so you can have an idea of what's to come. The new model will pretty much look the same as the predecessor.
