China-Only Samsung Veyron Clam-shell Flagship In the Works?
If you’re not very much into super-cars, you’ll probably miss the chutzpah represented by the Samsung Veyron, a soon to be released smartphone in a clam-shell form-factor which is built around a powerfulÂ Exynos 8890 system on chip. It looks like clam-shell smartphones are to be revived soon by the Korean tech giant, as the new Samsung Veyron comes with a bang, to say the least. However, this is not the first attempt to re-invent history, because Samsung tried to pull that off last year, when they released another flagship grade smartphone, exclusively for China though, a piece of gear code-namedÂ W2016 (internal model number SM-2016), a smartphone with a huge price tag, i.e. 2 x Galaxy S6.
This year’s Samsung Veyron arrivesÂ again in a clam-shell design, it’s powered by a state of the art (in house made) system on chip and it comes with the internal model numberÂ SM-2017, Â also being code-named just like Bugatti Veyron, world’s most expensive super car (and the fastest).The new Samsung Veyron will be powered by an updated system on chip, theÂ Â Exynos 8890 respectively, which replaces the oldÂ Exynos 7420 in the W2016, a solid piece of hardware which is everything about top notch performance. The camera will be borrowed from the current Galaxy S7 series, meaning that the Samsung Veyron will feature a 12 megapixels frontal snapper and a secondary 5 megapixels selfie unit.
The display will remain virtually identical in the new generation, i.e. a dual 3.9 inches wide SUPER AMOLED version, basically two of them, one screen on either side of the clam-shell smartphone. And that pretty much sums up whatÂ we know currently about the soon to become world’s coolest smartphone, aside that will be once again a China-only model. The question that pops into Â my mind and probably yours is why Samsung keeps these awesome clam-shell smartphones away from our hands?
