Samsung W20 5G Foldable Phone Teased. Expected To Launch In November
After Samsung unveiled Galaxy Fold, there has been a whirlwind of rumours that the company is working on more foldable handsets which are at cheaper versions. Recently, at the Samsung Developer Conference, the company also showed off a foldable flip phone form factor. Now, a recent post from Weibo confirmed that the company is all set to unfold a new foldable phone under its W series, named as Samsung W20 5G, sometime in November. According to the teaser, the handset is the successor of Samsung W 2019 and will be available only in China.
There is a slight difference between the two handsets where on one hand, W2019 offered a traditional keypad flip phone design, the W20 is well-equipped with a clamshell form factor where the entire area will be covered by a foldable display. There is a possibility that the W20 5G will fold vertically and we may get to see a secondary screen on the cover, but no such news has been confirmed.
Rumours suggest that the new foldable phone will flaunt the same Infinity Flex display that is seen on the Galaxy Fold. To bring to your notice, Samsung launched Galaxy Fold earlier this year but several complications with the flexible display and hinge design delayed the launch until the second half of 2019. The Fold is available in India in limited quantities priced at Rs 1,65 lakhs. As Samsung only launches its W-series in China, it is still unknown whether W20 5G will be available in other parts of the world except for China. It is speculated that Samsung might launch the W20 5G globally considering the company’s push to make foldable phone mainstream going into 2020.
A tough competition is here to escalate between W20 5G and Motorola’s big reveal of its Razr foldable phone as both the foldable handsets will be launched in November. Recently leaked images of Razr 2019 foldable phone offers a look of the gorgeous folding display which is reminiscent of the classic Razr feature phone with a clamshell design and a display on the outer cover as well. We are expecting to get more details soon!
