Samsung’s third-generation foldable has sold one million units in South Korea, a few days later than projected. According to Samsung, this occurred on Wednesday (analysts were predicting that millions will be achieved last weekend).
The Galaxy foldable have been available in their home market for a little over a month. Only Samsung’s biggest hits, the Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy S8 series, sold one million units faster in their home market.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 accounts for the majority of sales, accounting for 70% of the total. The Galaxy Z Fold3 accounted for the remaining 300,000 devices. The cheaper Flip is a good value for money while also providing a unique experience not available on a Galaxy S21 phone of the same price.
According to Samsung, more than half of Z Flip3 owners (54%) were millennials or members of Generation Z. This also means that people born in the 1980s and earlier are buying foldable phones, indicating that they are appealing to people of all ages. Samsung is extending the trade-in program through October 31 in order to keep the gravy train flowing. Koreans can trade in their old phone for a discount on the new Z Flip3 or Z Fold3, which includes an iPhone XS or XR.
