Dubbed Veyron, the device is said to feature a Samsung Exynos 8890 processor and dual 3.9-inch HD Super AMOLED displays.

While the clamshell design is a thing belonging to the past in most markets, Chinese consumers still enjoy this design and smartphone makers continue to release new such devices. Samsung released the high-end SM-W2016 last year in China, and now it looks like its successor is already in the works. 

Dubbed SM-W2017, this upcoming clamshell handset from Samsung is internally known as Veyron, claims an exclusive report by SamMobile. The same source also reveals a few highlights of this smartphone - a Samsung Exynos 8890 processor, dual 3.9-inch HD Super AMOLED displays, a 5 MP camera for selfies and a 12 MP main image snapper.

In addition to the above, the Samsung SM-W2017 might sport the same glass and metal build used by the Galaxy S7 flagship but remains to see if they manage to make it resistant to the elements as well. Since nothing is official yet, it would not be a surprise to see the new Samsung clamshell smartphone launching loaded with Android N. We will get back to it as soon as we hear anything new, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
