Samsung W21 5G is the name of the new foldable smartphone. However, the new model is available only in China at the moment. This must not be confused with the Galaxy Z Fold 2 Chinese version. The Chinese model is out and available for selling in the country.
W21 5G vs Z Fold 2
There is not much difference between the two models. W21 5G has a bigger body and is fancier. The new Samsung smartphone comes with a metallic gold finish coupled with a ribbed texture on the back cover. We are not entirely sure if the model sports the same Gorilla Glass Victus found on the original model; however, it is covered by glass. According to Samsung, the phone comes with “7-layer nano-level optical film,” which gives it the polished gold look.
Samsung W21 5G specs
The new model sports a 7.6-inch primary display coupled with a 6.23-inch outer screen. It features a Snapdragon 865 Plus processor. One of the downsides is that it runs on the old operating system, the Android 10. W21 5G packs 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. You can insert two SIM cards as it sports two slots. As you can already tell, the new model comes with pretty much everything that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 packs.
However, another difference between the two models is the price. W21 5G costs 19,999 Chinese yuan, which is $3,019. On the other end, we have the Galaxy Z Fold 2 priced at 17,000 Chinese yuan, which is $2,566. Therefore, the price of the new model is significantly higher than the original device. Traditionally, the Samsung W series has been available only in the Chinese market. However, you never know, maybe the company will release it worldwide at some point.
