Samsung's President Claimed That 1 Million Galaxy Fold Units Had Been Sold

The rough start does not seem to prevent the Galaxy Fold from gaining one million users, as stated by Young Sohn, the president of Samsung Electronics

Samsung’s first-ever foldable phone had a rough start with several flaws, as well as reliability and durability concerns. The $2000 price tag does not help either as it seems to put the foldable phone out of the reach of most people. However, these obstacles do not seem to prevent Samsung from gaining one million users, as stated by Young Sohn, the president of Samsung Electronics.

This stat was revealed during Berlin’s Disrupt event of TechCrunch. What he said was there were one million people who wanted to use this device with the price of $2000 for each. After that, he went on confirming that the Fold’s sales had reached one million units.

One million sounds like a lot but it is not much in comparison with the several million smartphone companies like Apple and Samsung ship each quarter. However, given the hefty price tag of the Galaxy Fold and the fact that it is extremely fragile, this figure is impressive. Other smaller and less established manufacturers can hardly sell that much even when their devices are much cheaper.

The Galaxy Fold was officially sold back in September, several months late than the original schedule after the testing devices were broken after they were sent to reviewers.

This incident had forced Samsung to delay the launching plan to redesign the phone, making it more durable.  Months later, most of the original issues have been addressed and the phone was launched to the public. However, Samsung also issues detailed caring instructions on how owners can protect their fragile devices.

Foldable phones from other manufacturers have also been delayed because of the same durability problem. The Mate X from Huawei is a prime example. Apart from the Mate X and the Galaxy Fold, another foldable phone we may expect is Razr from Motorola.
