The Galaxy Z Fold 2 was released in China in two color options last month but much like last year, domestic network operator China Telecom is getting a special version of Samsung’s foldable device that boasts a unique paint job. This carrier-exclusive variant was spotted recently in the database of China’s regulatory agency TENAA where it flaunts a platinum gold finish with a black camera module.
The unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 2 sold by Samsung in China carries model number SM-F9160 but the China Telecom-exclusive is identified as SM-W2021, following in the footsteps of teh SM-W2020 last year. It has a platinum gold frame, hinge, and back cover, the latter of which presents a vertical stripe pattern and the China Telecom logo. The original Galaxy Fold W20 5G for China Telecom also had a unique finish but it was based on a single color – white – rather than a stripe pattern. This color combination will probably remain exclusive to the carrier so if you live outside of China then the image gallery below is probably the closest you’ll ever get to seeing this variant up close.
The regulatory agency doesn’t reveal any details pertaining to the phone’s specifications but they should be identical to the standard variant. The unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 2 is sold in the Far Eastern country with 512GB of storage so the China Telecom variant should offer the same. The foldable phone-tablet has a 6.23-inch Super AMOLED cover display, a 7.6-inch Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X 120Hz panel, a triple main camera setup and two selfie sensors, and a dual 4,500mAh battery.
