Earlier this week, we reported the sighting of an advertisement for the Galaxy W20 5G at an exhibition in China. Now, the device has received certification from the WiFi Alliance.
The Samsung W2020 is a continuation of Samsung’s W2016, W2017 and W2018 range of flip smartphones, but with the integration of the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s folding screen.

The SM-W2020 is also confirmed to include a Snapdragon 855 chipset under its hood, and 8GB RAM and a minimum of 512GB of internal storage. It’s also predicted that the phone will use UFS 3.0 storage.

Other features include a punch-hole selfie camera, a dual-camera setup on the back and Ultra-Thin Glass on the inner display.
The release of the SM-W2020 likely to be at the end of this year; and like the company’s other niche devices, its sale likely to be confined to its home in Korea, as well as China.
