The Samsung W22 5G, a tailored version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, has been released in China. The new Samsung smartphone, which is the successor to the Samsung W21 5G from last year, comes with an S Pen and is targeted at the Chinese market. Although the Samsung W22 5G’s hardware is very similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, it has various software changes such as unique themes and wallpapers, as well as a somewhat different design with a Black-Gold colour scheme to deliver a unique experience. Google Mobile Services and Samsung’s ‘Galaxy’ branding are also missing from the Samsung W22.
