Samsung prepares to release another foldable smartphone in the style of the Galaxy Z Fold3
Evan Blass has provided the first look at the Samsung W22 5G, a successor to last year's W21 5G. Samsung sells the W21 5G exclusively in China, and Blass has not confirmed if the South Korean company plans to offer the W22 5G elsewhere.
Samsung based the W21 5G on the Galaxy Z Fold2, sharing almost all components between the two devices. The W21 5G supports dual-SIM connectivity through two SIM slots though, a feature that the Galaxy Z Fold2 lacks. The W21 5G's elaborate chassis was ever so slightly taller than the Z Fold2's as well, and it was only available with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.
Blass' render gives the impression that the W22 5G has dual Under Panel Cameras (UDC), with a smaller aperture visible next to the main UPC. However, the Z Fold3 also has this second sensor, which handles ambient light and proximity detection.
We would also expect Samsung to equip its next W series smartphone with dual SIM card slots again, a feature missing from the Galaxy Z Fold3 too. Additionally, we imagine that Samsung will give the W22 5G a striking design as it did with the W21 5G, along with 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM.
