Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy W23 foldable smartphone in China today at 7 pm local time. According to predictions, the W23 5G will be a luxury customized version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 smartphone, just like last year’s model known as the W22. On the other hand, Galaxy Z Flip 4 will be added to the Samsung product portfolio under the name of W23 Flip.
The recently leaked information has confirmed these speculations and has provided viewers with live images of this handset before the official release of the Galaxy W23. These images show that no changes will be made to the basic design of the Galaxy Z Fold 4. In addition, the color design is similar to the Samsung W22 last year, and this time we also see the use of a glossy gray back panel, a logo in the central part with the words “Heart to the world” and gold-plated edges and hinges. One of the images shows a gold-plated back panel, which could belong to a specific variant of the Samsung W23.
The W23 and W23 Flip phones, like other W-series handsets, have been sold to raise money for charity over the years. Last year, the Samsung W22 5G was launched with a price tag of 16,999 yuan ($2,372). In terms of technical specifications, the Samsung W23 and W23 Flip are expected to have exactly the same features as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Therefore, it is expected that the processing power of all 2 new W series handsets will be provided by Qualcomm’s 1st generation Snapdragon 8 Plus chip. Samsung W23 Flip will be a folding device with a clamshell design and a 6.7-inch folding screen; While W23 is considered a device with a 7.6-inch folding screen.
According to the predictions, the back panel of the Samsung W23 5G will host a triple camera configuration including a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto module with 3x optical zoom. The camera under the display also has a resolution of 4 megapixels and a 10 megapixel camera will be installed on the front panel of the device.
On the other hand, Samsung W23 Flip will probably be equipped with a dual camera system including a 12-megapixel main module and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
