Smartphones are expensive and the price just seems to be going uphill. But Samsung have given another meaning to extortionate. They’ve introduced a modern day flip phone (the Samsung W2017) that will cost over £2K. That face expression was mine too. A phone way more than the iPhone? Crazy stuff.

The Samsung W2017 Tech Specs

How good is it? Well, the 2K flip phone does not have any “omg I have to buy one” features. Everything it consists of is a mixture of the features you would find in any of the Galaxy smartphones. I guess its main selling point is the retro design really. A summary of the specs are shown below, alternatively watch the video above.

  • Dual 4.2″ Display
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB Internal memory
  • Supports SD Card
  • 2,300 mAh battery

The W2017 will only be available in China apparently but would you buy it?

Thank you for reading.
