Samsung’s swanky new foldable smartphones feature improved designs, better specs, and lower prices. No wonder they have become quite popular in various markets. It was reported a few days ago that Samsung has managed to rake in close to a million pre-orders for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in South Korea. Now, it is being reported that the company’s new products are delayed in more countries.
The South Korean firm has started sending out emails to customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Watch 4, and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic that they should expect some delay in getting the shipments. Apparently, the 512GB version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is facing delays in Germany, and the device will get delivered in mid-September instead of August.
There also seems to be a delay in shipping pre-orders of the Galaxy Watch 4 in Germany and Spain, and the 46mm LTE version of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. The smartwatches are also delayed in France. In the US, shipping dates for the 256GB version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (Green) have been moved forward.
This year, Samsung focussed on making its foldable phones more affordable and accessible. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 are stronger and feature an IPX8 rating for dust and water resistance. They also feature stronger and more durable screens. When it comes to the company’s new smartwatches, they are the first in the world to run the brand new Wear OS 3 that is faster and more efficient.
