Samsung has been launching W-series smartphones from time to time, however, the series has never made it outside of China since it moved away from NAM-padded clamshell phones. The company has now launched the Samsung W22 5G, which is a custom version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G.
The new Samsung W22 5G has been launched through a partnership with China Telecom. The device is a high-end version of the Z Fold 3 priced at 16,999 yuan (approximately Rs 1,98,684) for the 16GB RAM / 256GB internal storage variant.
