The Samsung Galaxy W20 that we have heard about for some time now has just passed a prerelease test in China. Thought to be a clamshell smartphone, recent reports suggest that the Galaxy W20 may in fact be Samsung’s second foldable smartphone.
The device which is set to be announced at a launch event on November 19 in Wuhan, China has now appeared on TENAA, complete with images, and a brief specs list. It gets the model number SM-W2020, with a design similar to the first Galaxy Fold announced in China a while ago.
TENAA hasn’t given us a view of the W20 when unfolded, but there are a couple of images that reveal the design from both sides. First off, the images reveal that the device has a hinge on the right edge; while other controls like the volume rocker, fingerprint scanner, and power button sit on the left. The device as per the listing measures 160.9 x 117.9 x 6.9mm – the same as the Galaxy Fold. The controls, as well as the footprint all line up with that of the Galaxy Fold, fueling speculations the W20, may, in fact, be a 5G only variant of the Fold.
