Samsung W21 5G foldable phone launched in China

Samsung W21 5G is the new foldable phone that the company launched today in the Chinese market, but it isn’t something we haven’t seen before. In fact, this is just a more premium-looking version of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (which is also available in the Chinese market). When it comes to the similarities between the W21 & the Z Fold 2, both have the same displays, cameras, battery, charging speed, & the chipset. So what’s different? Well, the W21 5G offers dual SIM support, something that is lacking in the Z Fold 2. Also, the W21 comes in a premium Gold color & the back panel has vertical lines. In short, the W21 looks more premium than the Z Fold 2 when you compare the two phones side-by-side.
