China Telecom has validated rumors that it would debut a successor to its W22 5G of 2021. The carrier has yet to reveal its design, however; therefore, its status as a super-high-end re-brand for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 has yet to be confirmed outright. It may be unveiled as such in late October 2022.

The famous leaker Ice Universe has just demonstrated 100% accuracy in predicting the existence of a "Samsung W23" by posting a fresh new launch poster for the same. It indicates that China Telecom intends to debut the device as a new branded product later in 2022.

The national carrier has been very subtle when it comes to teasing the device thus far, leaving Weibo users to merely speculate that it will indeed be a Galaxy Z Fold4 configured for the network in question. Should this be the case, it may, like its W22 predecessor, get a gold-heavy re-styling that may leave it with a sky-high price-tag on its launch.

Either way, it is now much more certain that the W23 5G can be purchased soon. It had been said to debut alongside a counterpart based on the Galaxy Z Flip4 (because that clamshell foldable somehow doesn't cost enough already, apparently); however, China Telecom has yet to act on these rumors in any way.

The Samsung W23, Flip variant notwithstanding, will be unveiled (as will its probably ultra-premium price) on October 21, 2022 at 19:00 Beijing time (13:00 CET).
