The time for the launch of Samsung's next-gen foldable smartphones is getting closer. It is rumored to happen in early August and now, we are hearing some more details. The latest leak coming from Front Page Tech's Jon Prosser who claims that Samsung has begun Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 mass production in huge numbers.
Prosser says that Samsung has kicked off the mass production process with an initial goal of producing 50,000 to 70,000 units per day. This target is both the models which mean the manufacturing plant will produce a total of 100,000 to 140,000 units on daily basis. It is a significant jump in comparison to production goals set for previous generations.
The overall sales goal is reported to be around 7 million units for both Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 combined. This is many folds higher than the previous generation goal of only 1-2 million units. It seems like the South Korean tech giant is now ready to bet big on foldable devices, a category that is still in its infancy stage.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are tipped to launch on August 3rd. These are then expected to go on sale starting August 27th. These dates are primarily for the launch in the United States. Samsung is rumored to bring noticeable changes to these foldables this year like the Fold 3 is speculated to have S Pen support and an in-display selfie camera.
