Samsung is gearing up to introduce a new foldable phone in China on November 19. Previous rumors pointed to a clamshell foldable phone but last week it became evident that W20 5G will simply be the 5G version of the Galaxy Fold. A new listing on Chinese regulatory agency TENAA confirms this as we get the first images and preliminary specs of the device.
The W20 5G measures 160.9x117.9x6.9mm which is identical to the Galaxy Fold in its unfolded state. The listing also confirms the presence of a secondary screen, which measures 4.6 inches.
The battery capacity is rated at 4,135 mAh which is slightly less than the 4,380 mAh on the Galaxy Fold but this is just a preliminary spec sheet so there’s room for error.
Samsung will hold the announcement ceremony for the Galaxy W20 on November 19. Pricing details are still unknown but the phone could remain exclusive to China Telecom. Judging by the Galaxy Fold’s popularity in China, the W20 5G will likely sell out instantly when it launches.
I suspect that the W20 is a Galaxy Fold 5G specifically made for China's 5G band network. My theory is that despite there is the official Galaxy Fold 5G, it won't be the same as China-exclusive one.
There already IS a 5G Galaxy Fold, the F907B. I've got one here next to me.
They need to include the 865 for inbuild 5g, then add a sd slot. Then people will buy it no worries.
