The Samsung Galaxy Fold was launched back in September after it was initially announced earlier in the year. However, according to new development, it appears that Samsung’s first foldable smartphone has already enjoyed some success. This is according to Samsung Electronics President Young Sohn, who during TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin, revealed that the company has managed to sell as many as 1 million units of the smartphone to date.
To be fair, one million sales isn’t very much compared to the tens of millions of phones that Samsung and Apple ship every quarter, but for a device that has a $2,000 price tag, it’s surprising nonetheless.
The Fold officially went on sale in September, months later than it was originally planned due to numerous review devices breaking in reviewers’ hands. Samsung cancelled off its original launch plans and went back to the drawing board, strengthening the phone’s design and revising parts of it, to make it less prone to breakage.
Samsung has been rumoured to launch a new Galaxy Fold in 2020, and hopefully, the mistakes they made this time, will not make an appearance in the next model.
