Samsung has pioneered the field of foldable phones, and the company is currently known as the best in this field. This is despite the fact that it is exposed to fierce and growing competition from Chinese companies such as Oppo and Xiaomi.
It is also expected that companies such as Google and Apple will participate in that competition. But at the moment, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 phones can be classified as the most prominent foldable versions ever.
Since the Korean giant is facing fierce competition from the Chinese side, it makes sense to be present in the Chinese market. The company preferred to be present in this market with a special and customized version, which is the Samsung W22 phone.
The new phone was revealed as a result of a collaboration between Samsung and the Chinese telecom company, and the phone comes with a custom design, along with offering the highest possible specifications.
The phone supports the S Pen along with the leading Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip with the support of fifth generation networks without a doubt. The phone also offers a camera under the screen along with a frequency of 120 Hz for its screens, along with 16 GB and 512 GB of RAM and internal storage, respectively.
Samsung W22 foldable phone 🐣
The phone offers a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection layer along with a black and gold design. The phone is also resistant to water and dust, and offers resolutions of 2260 * 832 and 2208 * 1768 pixels for its two screens, respectively.
As you can deduce, this phone is just an improved version of the globally available Galaxy Z Fold 3 phone. On the back, the design of the phone presents the “Heart of the World” logo, in reference to the Chinese version.
The Samsung foldable phone is available at CNY 16,999, which is roughly $2,644. The process of selling it has already begun in the Chinese market.
Speaking of the rest of the phone’s specifications, it offers a 4,400 mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging, 10W wireless charging, and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. The phone also offers a triple rear camera of 12 megapixels for each lens.
The phone offers the camera feature under the screen that we saw in the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which is a 4-megapixel camera that is relied on in the internal screen, that is, the foldable, while the external screen comes with a traditional front camera.
Performance and screens 📱
The Samsung W22 offers excellent performance due to its flagship Snapdragon 888 processor, 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.
It was strange for Samsung not to use the Plus version of the processor, as happened with the previous version of this phone, but the processor remains one of the most powerful processors currently available. In addition to the large capacities of internal memory, the phone also offers LPDDR5 and faster UFS 3.1 memory.
The phone also supports water resistance, and offers higher levels of endurance compared to previous generations of foldable phones in general, and do not forget that this phone is an improved version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, so it does not come with the same features.
In terms of screens, the main screen – when the individual – comes in a size of 7.6 inches and a high resolution of 2208.1768 pixels, as mentioned above. In general, the phone screens, whether internal or external, do not fall short in any way, especially with the energy-saving Eco2 OLED technology, and a frequency of 120 Hz.
The three cameras come with 12 megapixels. It is divided into a wide-lens main camera by default. And a large wide-lens camera. A telephoto camera for close-up. This is in addition to the traditional front camera in the small screen, and the camera at the bottom of the screen, which is relied upon when the phone is stretched.
