Samsung is one of the most prolific foldable smartphone manufacturers in the world. Information appeared on the Web that this year the vendor intends to significantly increase the supply of foldable models.
According to some media, citing anonymous sources “familiar with the matter”, this year it is planned to sell three million copies of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with support for stylus S-Pen. In addition to them, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 clamshells will hit the market in July.
According to the latest data, the company is preparing to sell seven million foldable smartphones of two types. It is noteworthy that last year deliveries were only 2.5 million copies. Some sources say that the company intends to increase sales 2.4 or even 2.8 times, relying on the curiosity of buyers who have not yet owned foldable devices. In fact, it will win even if it can sell more than three million gadgets.
The new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 flagship will be the first smartphone to use a sub-screen camera under the display. This will provide the best screen-to-bezel ratio. The display of the smartphone will have a flexible protective Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Although the model supports the use of the S Pen stylus, it is still unknown if it will be bundled or sold separately.
