While the Korean firm – Samsung experienced some glitches that delayed the timely rollout of the Galaxy Fold, the Korean giant eventually rolled out the device a while ago and is now back with a second and, perhaps, a better offering. Welcome the Samsung W20 5G – Samsung’s latest, and second foldable smartphone.
The firm following a series of leaks, and rumors today at an event in China took the wrap off the Samsung W20 5G, and as speculated, the de device shares a lot with the Galaxy Fold, although note a completely rebadged Fold. The design revolves around that of the Fold, with an articulated spine, or the hinge, that allows it to open and close like a book.
And much like the Galaxy Fold the Samsung W20 features 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 flaunts a 7.3-inch tablet-sized display with a 1,536 x 2,152 pixels and support for HDR10+, while there is a smaller 4.6-inches display with HD+ resolution on the outside.
