Samsung has announced to China the second version of the 2020 foldable flagship, although it doesn’t have a Galaxy name. This phone is based on the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, but will become known domestically as the “Samsung W215G”.
The hardware is about the same. The 7.6-inch dynamic AMOLED 2X display is on the inside, and the 6.2-inch Super AMOLED and Gorilla Glass Victus remain on the outside. The W215G is equipped with a Snapdragon 865 + chipset, and in China, the phone gets a maximum memory configuration with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.
Curiously, the W21 is slightly taller than the Z Fold 2, but the battery remains the same – 4,500mAh with 25W wired and 11W wireless charging. The same is true for triple 12MP cameras.
The only major difference is that the phone has two SIM slots that can be adjusted for the local market (launched in partnership with China Telecom). The back looks different, and the vertical striped gold color.
Samsung W215G is in a fashionable box
The price is higher than the regular Galaxy Z Fold 2 available in China. 17,000 yuan. However, the W series is a premium service and comes with additional benefits such as concierge service.
