Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy W21 5G foldable phone in China. It is essentially a rebranded Galaxy Z Fold 2 that has been tweaked slightly for the Chinese market. This is similar to what it did last year by launching Galaxy Fold as the Galaxy W20 5G in the country. It comes with slight tweaks and a slightly increased pricing for the same reasons.
In fact, the biggest difference between the two phones is that the Galaxy W21 5G comes with a dual-SIM card slot. It means Chinese users will be able to use two physical SIM cards at the same time. The phone further has a different back pattern along with a special logo at the bottom.
The Galaxy W21 5G is currently available for pre-orders for CNY 19,999 (about $3,000) in China. It will go on sale starting November 20th i.e. after about two weeks from today.
