Samsung sells out the Galaxy Fold in China in under five minutes
Samsung relaunched the Galaxy Fold and by the looks of it, the second time is the charm. The foldable device is selling in various markets, and today it finally arrived in China. According to the company’s account on Weibo, all units of the CNY15,999-priced phone (that’s well over $2,000) sold out in five minutes.
The Korean manufacturer does not say how many phones were actually available for purchase, but we doubt the number is very high. Nevertheless, some people actually paid the equivalent of $2,288/€2,000 and got a device with a 7.3” foldable Dynamic AMOLED screen and Snapdragon 855 chipset.
The phone has only one memory option - 12 GB RAM + 512 gigs of storage. There are three cameras on the back, two on the front/inside and another one above the smaller AMOLED panel that sits on the outside of the Fold. Samsung sold out the phone with model number SM-F9000 that has a big 4,380 mAh battery but lacks 5G. A date for the arrival of the next batch is yet to be set.
