A few days ago, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 were about to cross an important milestone in South Korea. Both smartphones were about to cross 1 million sales in Samsung’s home base. Samsung has itself confirmed that both foldable have collectively crossed that number.
Although there isn’t any word about how many units of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 were sold individually. However, the report does state that 70% of the same are accounted for by the Galaxy Z Flip 3. This isn’t very surprising, given that it is a tad more affordable.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is quite popular among the younger generation
Furthermore, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 seems to be quite popular among the younger generation, as 54% of the units sold were scooped up by that demographic. Samsung’s decision to market its foldable as a lifestyle product could be the reason for its popularity among the youth.
Over 270,000 Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 units were activated within a day of the foldables’ launch. As a result, Samsung had to extend the date for activations. It is abundantly clear that the foldables are a massive hit in South Korea, and Samsung wants to ride that momentum. These new devices have made history as Samsung’s best-selling foldables in South Korea.
Samsung has introduced some new trade-in programs in the country that will incentivize more people to swap their devices for a shiny new Galaxy Z Fold 3/Galaxy Z Flip 3. The programs will last through October 31, so we can expect the sales numbers to go even higher.
Currently, there is no word about how many Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 units sold globally, but we can expect that figure to be better than last years’ results. Samsung doesn’t have any real competition in the foldable market and that situation is unlikely to change anytime soon.
