Samsung is reportedly all set to introduce yet another flip Android phone. Just about a year earlier, it unveiled the W2016 high-end flip phone and now, it has already officially announced the W2017 in China. Similar to its predecessor, the new Android flip phone is also packed with some amazing specs just like any other non-flip smartphone.

However, some reports have claimed that Samsung could be restricting the W2017 to China only. This may not be good news for those who still have a thing for flip phones. Even though the flip phone style is old school now, the W2017 could come with a hefty price tag. The Samsung W2016 retailed at around ¥9,999 (AU$1,930).

However, the Samsung W2017 could carry a price tag of ¥20,000 (AU$3,850), reports CNET. If reports are to be believed, the flip phone will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 64GB internal storage and 4GB RAM. A microSD slot will also be provided for storage expansion.

As the Samsung W2017 will be a flip Android phone, it will have two screens. Both the screens are assumed to be of 4.2 inches. The 1080p touch screens will be located on the outside and inside of the handset. A 12MP primary camera supporting 4K recording will also be included. There will be a 5MP front camera and a 2,300 mAh battery.

As per GSMArena, the Samsung W2017 will likely be confined to the Chinese market only. The handset will also have a fingerprint sensor, Always On Display feature, Quick Charge and will reportedly run on Android Marshmallow. Global release is not guaranteed.

The Samsung W2017 will be a dual-sim flip Android phone. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G and USB OTG. Apart from the fingerprint scanner, other sensors that would be included are accelerometer, proximity sensor, barometer, gyroscope and ambient light sensor.
