Samsung Galaxy Fold: we know how many people bought a foldable smartphone

fold 1 500

Result (not) satisfactory.

At the end of last year, the news spread that the Internet had been sold million copies folding smartphone from Samsung. This information was provided by the company's president, i.e. quite a reliable person. However, as it turns out, the CEO confused the actual result with … the company's goal for 2019. Analysts then suspected that Galaxy Fold was in the hands of about 400-500 thousand. users.

Samsung has just confirmed these suspicions. The general director of the company's IT department spoke at CES 2020who said quite uncertainly:

"I think we sold between 400,000 and 500,000 Galaxy Fold smartphones." – such words fell in the direction of journalists. As you can see, even high-level Samsung employees do not quite know how their revolutionary smartphone spread. 100,000 difference devices can be significant.

But does Samsung have anything to be ashamed of? Personally, I don't think so. It is worth bearing in mind the postponement of the Galaxy Fold launch several times, its numerous screen problems and controversy. Despite this, almost half a million people decided to spend a considerable amount of money on – as if there were – a prototype.

This year, we can count on a revolution in the field of folded smartphones. TCL, Huawei, Xiaomi, Samsung – these manufacturers have confirmed the announcement of "fold" devices this year. It remains a matter of dispute whether the market is ready for such a revolution.
