After the release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the numerous issues that followed, Samsung now has more experience with foldable phones. There have been several reports that the company is working on another foldable device. Now, it appears that we will be seeing its second official foldable phone soon. According to some new posters, the company will have a launch event in Wuhan on November 19th where it will release the Samsung W20 5G foldable phone.
From the official poster, the Samsung W20 is not a flip phone as speculated rather, it is a foldable device. This smartphone uses the same folding pattern as the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It can fold to the left or right while retaining its appearance. In addition, the wireless certification information shows that a version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with model number SM-W2020. This model number feels very likely to be the W20 5G phone.

Samsung W20 Plausible specs
The Samsung W20 will be much like the Galaxy Fold in terms of design. It will feature two screens – a secondary, and an outer display when in the folded state, and a primary, and a larger one that becomes visible when unfolded. The device should flaunt a 7.3-inch tablet-sized display with 1,536 x 2,152 pixels and support for HDR10+, while there is will also be a smaller 4.6-inches display with HD+ resolution on the outside. It should come with a total of six cameras – a triple camera setup on the back panel, a single 10MP front-facing camera above the secondary display, and a dual-camera setup that consists of a 10MP sensor and an 8MP RGB depth snapper above the main unfolded display.
We know that Samsung Galaxy Fold does not support 5G network. Thus, it is most likely that the Samsung W20 5G phone is the 5G version of Samsung Galaxy Fold. Considering that Samsung Galaxy Fold sells for as much as 15,999 yuan ($2292), the Samsung W20 5G phone should approach 20,000 yuan ($2866).
