Samsung's high-end SM-W2017 Android powered clamshell receives FCC certification
Samsung's high-end Android clamshell is certified by the FCC with a 2300mAh battery
A previous trip through the GFXBench benchmark site reveals that the phone will carry a 4.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC will power the phone, carrying a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of flash storage. A fingerprint scanner will be found on the side of the handset, along with a heart rate monitor. A 12MP camera adorns the back of the unit, with a 5MP front-facing snapper handling selfies and video chats. A Type-C USB port is on board, as is support for Samsung Pay.
Getting certified by the FCC doesn't necessarily mean that the phone is going to be offered in the U.S. However, if Samsung does have such intentions, at least it will have already taken care of securing the FCC's approval.
