Every year Samsung exclusively releases a fancier version of the Z Fold to China Telecom, e.g. last year’s Samsung W22 5G. For the first time the company is also releasing a W Flip model, based (of course) on the Z Flip. It’s like a modern version of those old W flip phones.

Samsung W23 FLip 5G launched

Both the latest offerings are luxury custom variants of the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 respectively.

The biggest difference between the Samsung W23 duo and the fourth-generation Galaxy Z Foldables is in terms of design. Both the W23 and W23 Flip feature gold-plated edges and hinges. The brand says that the W23 duo’s hinge shell adopts a high-end watch metal precision cutting process and is carved by nano-level polishing.

The new hinge structure is also said to be thinner and more flexible. The hinge shell also has an embossed metal pattern that looks dazzling. Both the W23 and W23 Flip come with the logo in the centre that reads ‘Heart to the world’. The colour scheme on the latest offerings is also the same as the W22 5G with a Black colour back panel.

The Samsung Galaxy W23 Flip both comes with a 6.7-inch main AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processors which is paired with 12GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. It is backed by a 3,700mAh battery unit.

The styling is the same as the W23, but this one opts for a cheaper glass back panel rather than ceramic. The hinge is still engraved though, so this isn’t something you can recreate with the Bespoke editor.
