    Samsung says Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have broken its sales record

    Samsung is seeing a lot of interest in its new foldable smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have captured the attention of people across the globe. 2021 just might be the year that foldable smartphones go mainstream.

    2020 was the first full year of Samsung selling foldable smartphones. It launched the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold 2. Both devices set a new record for foldable sales to date. That record has now been smashed only by the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 pre-orders so far.

    Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 pre-orders are at an all time high

    The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have been available for pre-order since last week. Reports from South Korea reveal impressive pre-order performance. Samsung received 450,000 pre-orders for both foldables combined in just one week. Analysts expect that the total number of pre-orders just in South Korea could cross 800,000 units.

    It's quite likely that Samsung is seeing such strong pre-order performance in other markets across the globe. That's why the company confirmed the following in a statement:

    “We are thankful for the great customer response to our new Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3. Interest in foldable smartphones is at an all-time high, with pre-order volume for Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 already outpacing total sales for Galaxy Z devices to date in 2021.”

    Samsung didn't provide any numbers. So it's unclear how many units of the new foldables have been pre-ordered or how many units of the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold 2 it has sold to date. Several market research firms estimate that Samsung sold around 2 million units combined of these two models.

    They now expect Samsung to sell 5.2 million units of its new foldables this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are more durable, powerful and stylish than their predecessors. They have also received substantial price cuts. If the pre-order figures are an indication, its new foldables are going to be super hit devices.
