Samsung's high-end 'Veyron' clamshell to include Always-on display, fast charging and more
We've heard a lot about Samsung's high-end clamshell SM-W2017 a.k.a 'Veyron'. With the company having recently made its mid-range Galaxy Folder 2 official after a series of leaks, we've since been treated to a number high-quality peeks at the more powerful, unannounced Android-based flip phone. Now, according to info leaked through Weibo, the device will include an always-on display, and will also be supportive of fast charging.
Where the aforementioned Galaxy Folder 2 includes a rather modest assortment of internal hardware, the SM-W2017 looks a powerhouse. The Always-on display looks set to be a 4.2-inch FHD offering, with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood will likely sit Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset with Adreno 530 graphics and 4GB of RAM.
There's also likely to be a 5-megapixel camera for selfies, while main 12-megapixel shooter is said to be the same sensor as the one found in the infamous Galaxy Note 7. Elsewhere, the flip phone will probably get a fingerprint sensor, along with a 2000 mAh battery that, thanks to this new info, we know should not take too long to charge.
So, if you're in the market for a device with the traditional clamshell features but don't want to lose out on the flagship bells and whistles, the Veyron appears to have all bases covered.
There's no word on precisely when the device will launch, but with the recent deluge of sightings and info, we'll probably not have to wait long for the official unveiling.
We'll have all of the details as and when, so stay tuned!
