Samsung Galaxy Fold, the first foldable smartphone from the company has received great responses from the consumers despite being a flop at first. The Galaxy Fold came back with some tweaks in the design, improvements in a couple of things, and a clear caution of the handle with care. Samsung Galaxy Fold being so fragile doesn’t bother the prospective buyers and thus they would like to invest in the first premium foldable phone.
Seeing such demand, Samsung is significantly increasing the sales of the Galaxy Fold next year. Samsung’s CEO DJ Koh also said during the annual Samsung AI forum in Seoul, “Consumers will witness a large number of foldable smartphones next year.” This means, Samsung is not only boosting the production of the Galaxy Fold but also developing more foldable phones with different form factors.
There are several reports already that tell Samsung is testing more foldable phones with different form factors. And, now Koh’s statement puts credence to all those reports.
A report that came last month from ETNews also stated that Samsung is aiming to sell as many as 6M Galaxy Fold units in 2020. This goes in line with what Koh has said now. Samsung was reportedly aiming for 10M units but it was later decided to set a goal of 6M figure rather.
Samsung is already ahead of its competitors in the foldable smartphone market and now its new commitment will set a new benchmark for all others which will start fresh.
Koh said more details will be unveiled shortly, without committing to a tentative deadline. We are on the verge of the completion of this year and eager to witness what the next year holds in itself. Stay tuned!
