Samsung has launched the W23 5G and W23 Flip in China. Both the latest offerings are luxury custom variants of the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 respectively. The Galaxy W23 5G also arrives as the successor to the last year’s W22 5G. The South Korean brand says that it has launched a new W-series device every year since 2008.

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.
