First Galaxy Fold pre-order batch in Malaysia sold out on day one

The first Galaxy Fold pre-order batch in Malaysia has been sold out in less than 24 hours. Samsung’s first foldable phone became available for pre-order in Malaysia just yesterday, and today the company took to Twitter to confirm that the stock has been depleted.

Samsung didn’t reveal any figures as to how many Galaxy Fold units have been made available for pre-order in Malaysia, but the company confirmed that a new batch will be made available “soon.”

Galaxy Fold is a hot commodity in many markets

Malaysia is not the first market in which the Galaxy Fold seems to be selling like hotcakes. The device was first released in South Korea and sold out on launch day, and it took only 30 minutes for the first Galaxy Fold batch in India to be sold out.

This apparent success is largely attributed to the fact that the Galaxy Fold is sold in limited quantities. Industry sources cited by Korean media outlets previously claimed that the first Galaxy Fold pre-order batch in South Korea comprised of only 1,000 units. Meanwhile, a total of 1,600 Galaxy Fold units have been shipped to India earlier this week, so it’s quite obvious that Samsung’s first foldable device isn’t pulling the same numbers as its other flagships.

It remains to be seen when Malaysia will get another Galaxy Fold batch, and it will be interesting to see how much longer the phone will be in demand. We’ll keep you up to speed as the story of this polarizing device continues to develop.

As a Samsung fan, I don’t understand the point of this half baked product.

They need to go back to the drawing board, add S pen integration and offer something as compelling as the Microsoft Surface Duo, then we can talk.

Almost everything that exists today begins with the first generation. And the first generation has many weaknesses. But this process is necessary to achieve perfection.

Nothing came up suddenly and perfectly.

If you can afford it, you can have it. And you will be part of the testing process.

If you can’t afford it, just sit quietly.

And F.Y.I the Surface Duo is just a prototype, not a real product. And will only be marketed starting next year’s holiday season.

Just a prototype not real product, if Surface Duo a real product then we can talk.

The first Note GT-N7000, was also half baked on my experience but software updates and custom ROMs definitely improved its usability

Yes, but I think people mean the screen. The phone operates fine. You couldn’t damage the Note screen accidentally with your fingernail.

I hope that there will be a foldable glass solution with IP68 on SM-F910F(Galaxy Fold 2)

The Microsoft Duo isn’t a thing. It’s only a prototype. Plus it’s just two screens stuck together. That’s not new. Been already done! There is very little innovation there my friend. I’m not defending the fold, I think the screen is too soft and too much of a compromise for most people, but not all….obviously as it’s selling, though they’re only release about a thousand or so devices at a time so obviously it will sell out. Phones with true foldable screens will only be commercially viable for a bigger customer base when they solve the screen hardness problem. However… Read more »

The US has a population of about 320 million. When you’re selling only a thousand or so devices, what do you expect?. I wouldn’t call that a big achievement.
