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 Will it be foldable, or will Samsung choose to go with the classic — and rather outdated — clamshell design?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.

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.
