Samsung has announced the release of a new generation of foldable smartphones Galaxy W. The day after tomorrow, October 13 at 19:00 local time, the new flagship Samsung Galaxy W22 5G, belonging to the Heart of the World series, will be presented at the Chinese Grand Theater in Hangzhou.
Custom smartphones W-series Heart of the World are more “premium” products than flagships of the S and Note series. At the same time, the Heart of the World series was jointly developed by Samsung and China Telecom and bears the logo of the latter – it is expected that the new product will be even more expensive than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Starting with the Samsung Galaxy W20, Samsung’s global W-series has been modified to reflect the company’s progress in the foldable smartphone market. Samsung Galaxy W22 5G externally will differ little from Samsung Z Fold 3. The novelty will receive a 7.6-inch foldable display and a frame, which, unlike the black version in the Samsung Z Fold 3, will be silver-gray.
The model will receive the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of ROM. As a rule, W-series smartphones are more expensive than Z-series models (sometimes by almost 50%). If the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is about $ 2328 (12/512 GB), then the Samsung Galaxy W22 5G will probably cost more than $ 3000, although there is no official confirmation of the price rumors yet.
The Samsung Galaxy W21 5G had a 7.3-inch display, Snapdragon 865+ chipset, 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, 25W fast wired charging and 11W wireless. The system runs on Android 10 OS with One UI 2.5.
