Official industry sources said Friday that sales of the new foldable smartphones Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 will surpass the 1 million unit mark in the domestic market this weekend.
Recall that the current Samsung foldable smartphones were presented a little over a month ago, on August 27. These sales rates are similar to those demonstrated by the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S8. It is important to note that these devices are faster than other models of the company to reach 1 million units sold in South Korea.
The number of pre-orders for the new foldable Galaxy smartphones reached 920 thousand units during the seven-day pre-order period. 270,000 devices were activated on the first day, a record number for any Galaxy device. Of course, it is worth remembering that we are talking about two smartphones at once.
The most popular of the two new products is the Galaxy Z Flip3, which is twice as popular as the Galaxy Z Fold3, which folds like a book. The high popularity of Samsung’s latest foldable smartphones is likely due to the fact that their cost has been reduced and functionality has been improved over previous generations of models.
Recall that both smartphones are based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, have 120-Hz AMOLED displays and 5G support. In addition, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has the S Pen experience that only the Galaxy Note series and Galaxy S21 Ultra have previously boasted.
