Samsung-W2017 Release Date, Price and Specs – CNET

by John_A



Apple has been granted a patent for a folding iPhone, but it’s not the only company that wants to bring back this classic phone design.

Samsung on Friday unveiled the W2017, an Android-based premium flip phone with not one but two 4.2-inch touchscreens. Both screens are on the top section of the phone, while the bottom half houses a feature-phone style keyboard.

The device, which uses the clamshell design used on many pre-iPhone feature phones, is expected to cost a pretty penny. It’s only currently expected to go on sale in China, where GSM Arena says it’ll be priced at a whopping 20,000 Chinese Yuan. That’s about $2,950, £2,350 or AU$3,850.

The W2017 is powered by a Snapdragon 820, the same processor used in the Galaxy S7. It’ll be running behind the times on the operating system front, running Marshmallow 6.0.1 rather than the newer Nougat 7.0.
