What version of the Galaxy Z Fold4 is sold in the UK? Will I be able to use it properly in China? What is the difference from the version found in China?

It used to be down to cellular bands, frequencies, not sure it's relevant anymore, maybe just the USA?

Chinese specification is usually better.

The international model of Fold4, SM-F936B, which is sold in the U.K. will work on most of the China bands but not the Chinese bands for... 5G, Band 79 (4700) or 4G, Band B34 (TDD 2100) or 3G, Band B39 (TD 1900) or 2G, Band CDMA BC0 (800). All others are OK. Just make sure that whichever Chinese network you sign up with does not rely solely on those bands.

If you are planning on using the Fold4 in China permanently, I would suggest getting the Chinese variant, SM-F9360, over there as it will probably be cheaper. 

(N.B. The Chinese variant does not have Google's Play Store and apps. A Google restriction.)
