Samsung’s first bet in the foldable smartphone market was quite problematic. The Galaxy Fold, which has announced back in February took several months to reach the market after users discovered a design flaw. Despite this, the company managed to release an upgraded unit that is selling quite well across the few markets where it is available. Now, Samsung is planning a new device for the foldable scene dubbed as Galaxy W20 5G.
During Samsung Developer Conference 2019, the South Korean firm teased a new foldable phone that folds vertically. It resembles Samsung’s traditional clamshell smartphones, that even today have a solid base of users in South-Korea. Today, China Mobile confirmed the Galaxy W20 5G foldable flip phone launch for the next month.

Interestingly enough, Motorola will also unveil a new smartphone with the same design approach. According to the leaks, it will be called RAZR. It will make a direct allusion to Motorola’s old-school lineup of flip smartphones. The device in question will leave anonymity on November 13. Despite the appeal, rumors indicate that this smartphone will pack mid-range specifications. Thus making it slightly less attractive than its foldable rivals. The upcoming W20 will be RAZR’s major rival, especially with its 5G capabilities. There are no reports about the internals, but we believe that this will be a flagship device.
