Samsung’s unique Z Fold 3 for China known as the W22 5G has leaked


Last updated: September 16th, 2021 at 15:44 UTC+02:00

Samsung is developing a unique Galaxy Z Fold 3 model for China — SamMobile exclusively reported all the way back in June when Galaxy Unpacked was still more than a month away. It hasn’t been much in the headlines since — or barely at all — but the so-called Samsung W22 5G was spotted in a leaked render earlier today, courtesy of @evleaks.

The Samsung W22 5G will be a direct successor to last year’s W21 5G. The latter was based on the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but it wasn’t a carbon copy. It was slightly taller than the Z Fold 2 and was released in a different combination of colors.

Exclusive to China and likely more expensive

As for the sequel, the leaked render at hand shows the W22 5G only from the front, but like the 2021 model, it may have a slightly modified design/finish and even different dimensions compared to the international model.

The Samsung W22 5G seemingly has UDC (Under-Display Camera) technology and a new wallpaper similar to last year’s model. Pricing and release details are unknown, but it’s worth reminding that the W21 5G cost 50% more than the international Galaxy Z Fold 2 at launch, which could mean that the W22 5G may go on sale for the equivalent of around $3,000.

The S Pen situation is unknown for the W22 5G, but a slightly redesigned exterior might call for a reworked S Pen case and other accessories.
