After a few luxury handsets available exclusively for the Chinese market, such as the W2018, W2019, and the W20, Samsung is back with the W21 5G. With a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen inside and an external 6.23-inch display, the Samsung W21 5G looks like the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G and runs on the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor.

China is an interesting market for luxury phones since Samsung has already come up with a few special designs that targeted exclusively this exotic market. The Samsung W21 5G might not be a radical design, but simply a special edition of the existing Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, a premium foldable device that was introduced this summer.

The list of specs and features of the Samsung W21 5G includes the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor with Adreno 650 graphics, 12 GB of memory, no less than 512 GB of internal storage space, as well as a 7.6-inch main display with 1,768 X 2,208 pixels and a 6.23-inch external display with a resolution of 816 X 2,260 pixels. Strange enough, the Samsung W21 5G is larger than the Galaxy Fold2 5G, although their displays have the same sizes. The proof has just been posted on Twitter by Ice universe (click here to see it).

The Samsung W21 5G will hit the Chinese market on November 20 for a wallet-hurting price of CN¥19,999 (roughly US$3,000). Non-Chinese customers could probably get one via less official channels, but that remains to be seen. After all, the Galaxy Fold2 5G is not that different. However, the Samsung W21 5G looks like an interesting item for collectors worldwide — as long as their budgets are generous enough.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
