So what exactly is Samsung W20 5G, what’s different to it than the Samsung Galaxy Fold? A lot cannot be said about the device since it’s only launched in China and I still haven’t got my hands on it, as it’s yet to roll out in India.
But as far as I could observe in the evolution of Galaxy Fold to W20 5G, the core-specifications of the device have gone through some minor changes.
Major changes can be observed to its shape, it’s hinges, and to the gap between it’s folded displays. Did you notice something?
