Samsung has presented another stylish foldable smartphone that builds on the Galaxy Z Fold3. The Galaxy W22 5G has a largely muted design, offset by its striking golden hinge. The device relies on a Snapdragon 888 SoC, a 120 Hz AMOLED display and supports a custom S Pen.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy W22 5G, a successor to last year's W21 5G. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy W22 5G is a China Telecom-exclusive handset. Hence, it seems unlikely that Samsung will release the device outside of China, even though you cannot buy the colour scheme anywhere else.

Ultimately, the Galaxy W22 5G is a Galaxy Z Fold3 with more RAM. Specifically, the Galaxy W22 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 share a Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 4,400 mAh battery. The Galaxy W22 5G has a 7.6-inch inner display and a 6.2-inch outer one as well, matching the Galaxy Z Fold3. It seems that Samsung has not changed any camera hardware for the Galaxy W22 5G either; it features an Under Panel Camera (UPC) too.

However, the device has 16 GB of RAM, 4 GB more than the Galaxy Z Fold3. The Galaxy W22 5G is also only available with 512 GB of storage, unlike its sibling. Additionally, the Galaxy W22 5G has two SIM card slots, with the Galaxy Z Fold3 settling for one and an e-SIM.

The Galaxy W22 5G costs CNY 16,999 in China, which currently converts to US$2,640. The device is only available in black and gold, with Samsung restricting the gold colouring to its hinge and the China Telecom logo.
