Samsung launched the W21 5G smartphone last year and now it seems to be the time that the device gets a successor. Today, Samsung has officially announced the launch date of its successor dubbed Samsung W22 5G.
The Samsung W22 5G will launch on October 13 at 7 PM local time in China. The device is expected to be available for purchase in China soon after its unveiling.
As learned by previous leaks, the Samsung W22 5G will bring the same design as the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
It won’t just borrow the exteriors, rather it will also have the same internal as the Z Fold 3. The W22 5G will come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
The foldable device is expected to have a 7.6-inch primary display and a 6.2-inch cover screen. The screens are expected to feature a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass protection. The device is also rumoured to have Under-display-camera and a triple camera system.
Considering that it has the same design as the Z Fold 3, the W22 might also have a 4,400mAh battery with support for fast charging.
The numbers might differ but we can expect a 25W wired fast charging and 11W wireless fast charging, similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
As far as pricing is concerned, rumours have it that the phone may cost CNY 18,999(~$2,949 USD). If this is to be believed then it will be way expensive than the Z Fold 3’s launch price of CNY 14,999(~$2,328 USD).
