Michail, 21 July 2022

The market for foldable phones is slowly but surely maturing and that’s reflected in the sales volumes. In a new blog post by TM Roh – President of Samsung Mobile shared that the foldable smartphone industry saw almost 10 million shipments in 2021. The figure is up 300% from 2020 and Roh believes this trend will continue in the years to come as “foldable devices are becoming widespread and staking a bigger claim in the overall smartphone market”. IDC previously published a report where it estimates a total of 7.1 million foldable shipments for 2021.

Roh goes on to share that 70% of Galaxy foldable users last year opted for a Z Flip3 which is by far the most popular folding phone from the maker. Z Fold3 on the other hand is the preferred device of choice for users that rely on multitasking and need the big screen experience.

Looking ahead Roh shares that Samsung made “advancements in every detail” in its upcoming foldables which are set to debut on August 10 at the next Galaxy Unpacked event.

Shipped and sold are 2 different thing. Were they able to sell all the shipped ones? Any numbers on sales? Damaged and returned items? A lot are refurbished at electronic stores, why?

Good Job Sammy! Love how they find a niche and Excel in it. Following Apple like all the other Chinese vendors is sad.
