Samsung W20 5G surfaces online, might sport a foldable or clamshell design
China Telecom has just teased the upcoming Samsung W20 5G, but the image they revealed comes with more questions than answers. For now, we don't know when this handset will arrive, if it will be a clamshell or foldable device, not to mention that there is no accurate launch date to talk about yet, either.
Although most such models mainly targeted the Chinese market, Samsung is now on its way to release another Galaxy Fold/Galaxy W phone. Will it be foldable, or will Samsung choose to go with the classic — and rather outdated — clamshell design? We cannot answer these questions yet, but China Telecom has just confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy W20 5G is on its way.
The teaser image that the aforementioned mobile carrier has recently unleashed in the virtual space reveals what might be a Galaxy Fold-like Android device. However, the Galaxy W20 5G name suggests that this device might be a 5G variant of the SM-W2020 that has been spinning around in the rumor mill for a while.
Samsung's latest W-series clamshell phone arrived at the end of last year as an ultra-premium device with a dual camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, two 4.2-inch S-AMOLED touchscreen displays, Bixby support, and a price tag equivalent with around US$2,730. Those who would like to grab such a phone in 2020 can only hope that its successor will be more budget-friendly and will be available outside Asia as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
