Earlier: Samsung is reportedly working on a new smartphone codenamed ‘Veyron’. According to the previous rumours, this device is expected to feature the same specs as that of the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge. The only difference here is, this new device is going to feature a clamshell form factor. It looks like Samsung is going back to old days with this form factor. Sounds interesting right?

So now we have some new leaks about this device, which actually shows us some of the specs that it is going to pack. With a name like ‘Veyron’, we can only expect this to pack some serious specs to match the power of the iconic sports car, that goes by the same name. This is has a model number SM-W2017. So essentially, we are looking at a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM. That rings some bells? It is exactly the same config that we saw with this year’s Galaxy S series flagships. For display, we have a 4.2-inch screen which was previously reported to be of 3.9-inch.
