On: November 19, 2019

At an event in China today, Samsung has unveiled its second foldable smartphone called the Samsung W20 5G. The handset is not a brand new phone, and seems to be a rebranded version of the company’s first foldable offering, the Galaxy Fold. As its name suggests, the Samsung W20 comes with support for the next-gen 5G networks. The phone features the same hinge-based design as the Galaxy Fold, and it also features two screens – a large one on the inside and a compact cover display on the outside.
