Samsung's high-end Android clamshell appears in live images
Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 was unveiled. This is the sequel to the manufacturer's entry-level Android flavored clamshell. Samsung is apparently prepping another Android powered clamshell for power users who want a smartphone with this form factor. Today, live images of the SM-W2017 have surfaced. The phone carries the code name 'Veyron."

The device carries a 4.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Driving the phone is a Snapdragon 820 chipset, which features a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. A 12MP rear-facing camera offers PDAF laser focusing, and the 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2000mAh battery.

The Veyron will be equipped with a Type-C USB port and will support Samsung Pay. And Samsung is also stuffing a fingerprint scanner into the device.

For those looking for a phone that combines the old school look of a clamshell design, but with high-end Android functionality, the SM-W2017 just might be that device. So far though, there is no word on when Samsung will make this handset official.
