One Million Galaxy Fold Units Have Been Sold, Says Samsung President
Samsung says that it has sold way more of its Galaxy Fold folding phones than most would have guessed. The phone sells for $2,000, and according to Samsung Electronic’s President, Young Sohn, the company has been able to sell tons of them. A million, in fact.
While a million phones might not sound all that much, it’s a huge number when you consider what this phone is. It’s a device that is the first of its kind to hit the mainstream market, and it’s hugely costly as well.
Furthermore it’s a phone that had one failed launch. In fact, after initial reviews were peppered with people having the screens fail, Samsung had to postpone the phone’s launch altogether.
But it seems that didn’t put many people off picking this thing up after it went on sale in September. Selling a million Galaxy Folds in less than three months is impressive, no matter which way around you slice it.
Whether this number sees other phone makers push the folding phone idea further remains to be seen. Motorola was the latest to announce a foldable phone, with a re-imagined Razr set to arrive with hopes of plucking just the right heart strings to be a success.
