Samsung forecasts 7 million foldable shipments for this year
Samsung is at the forefront of the foldable market thanks to its Z Fold and Z Flip lines. A new report from South Korean news outlet The Elec suggests Samsung is aiming to ship between 6 and 7 million units of its upcoming Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3.
The report specifies that the Z Fold3 alone is expected to sell in the 3 million unit range while the Z Flip3 is expected to rack in an additional 4 million shipments. Both phones are expected to launch in July which would leave roughly 5 months for them to reach the aforementioned milestones.
For comparison, Samsung managed 2.5 million foldable shipments over the past year while initial estimates were twice as high at 5 million. This in turn is putting added skepticism from market watchers in South Korea.
