Samsung W2017 Clamshell Phone with Dual Displays & Fingerprint Sensor Leaked in Live Images



In November last year, Samsung launched its flagship clamshell phone W2016 with dual displays and metal body. Now in 2016, the company will be launching its successor Samsung W2017 in the next couple of months. A few specifications of the W2017 are already revealed, thanks to the Antutu and Zauba listings. On Antutu, the device was spotted with the Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor coupled with Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM.

Today, the live images of the device are leaked on Weibo showing the metal build body with a curved glass panel on the back. It sports dual displays, same as on W2016 and we expect it to be Super AMOELD panels. The Zauba listing revealed the device to feature 4.2-inch displays. It comes with 64GB of internal storage, and we hope the device will also accept expanding the storage card with the MicroSD card slot.

Additionally the upcoming W2017 also features a fingerprint sensor on the rear which is mentioned to support Samsung Pay with the integrated NFC and MST technologies. It also works with the swiping machines that lack the NFC support, the recently launched Gear S3 also came MST support. On the rear, the W2017 flip phone will be coming with the same 12MP dual pixel autofocus camera which we have seen on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7 devices.

For selfies, the device will stick with the 5MP front camera. It will be running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with TouchWiz UI laid on top. As of now, there is no information about the battery capacity of the W2017, hope there will be no battery issue on this device. Though the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 well received, the battery issue of the device made the company to replace all the 2.5+ million handsets sold in the initial two weeks of sale.

The availability of the device will be limited to just China and most probably South Korea. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for complete information about the upcoming clamshell phone from Samsung.
