Before smartphones, flip phones were a best-seller. There was something insanely cool about a cell phone that you should open before using. Everyone remembers the legendary Motorola Razr V3 and its trendy design. However, flip phones are basically pointless now and they have been replaced with more powerful, Internet-connected, touchscreen devices.
Still, flip phones haven’t been forgotten completely. One of them, in fact, was announced by Samsung in late 2016. It’s called W2017 and it really is a tribute to flip phones but with a modern touch. Essentially, W2017 is a smartphone in the flip phone form factor. It’s equipped with two 4.2-inch OLED displays: one on the outside and the other on the inside. The front screen allows you to operate the phone without opening it. But when you want to send a text, the second screen comes into play. As every other flip phone, this one has a set of buttons, which will cause nostalgia for many people.

In terms of specs, everything isn’t quite interesting. On one hand, W2017 has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which is pretty decent. On the other hand, Snapdragon 430 processor seems too out-of-date. Obviously, it won’t cope well with heavy games. Its functionality is similar to modern budget smartphones, so it’s not a powerhouse, like Samsung flagship devices. Still, you’re okay with having less power, it won’t be a problem.
Apart from standard characteristics, W2017 has some features from high-end Samsung devices, like a fingerprint scanner, Samsung Pay and wireless charging support. Of course, it isn’t fitted with an iris scanner or Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby but it still is impressive.
According to latest rumours, Samsung W2017 already started selling in South Korea. Unfortunately, there’s no information about this phone coming to bigger markets (USA or Europe). It looks like W2017 will be oriented towards the Asian market.
