Samsung has been producing gorgeous looking flagships; Note 7 is the epitome of the design on a smartphone. But for a change, Samsung launched our once beloved flip phone named W2016, which was exclusively sold in China. Today, it has launched the successor of W2016 named W2017.

It boasts powerful specs that are on par with current generation high-end phones. However, it comes with a hefty price tag and availability in other markets is dubious.

Now, don’t faint after reading the last row. Atleast on paper, the phone doesn’t justify the exorbitant price tag. Maybe, it should have been build by some premium material.
