Now, the Seoul-based brand has confirmed that its newest foldable smartphones have been met with open arms in India too.
First-day Fold 3 and Flip 3 pre-orders are 2.7x higher than Note 20 in India
Speaking to media recently, Samsung announced that Indian pre-orders of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 exceeded the total received for the Galaxy Note 20 on the first day of availability.That is already an impressive feat, but the numbers aren’t even close. Samsung says that it recorded 2.7x more pre-orders for the Fold 3 and Flip 3 duo than it did for the Galaxy Note 20 series.
Exact unit numbers weren’t shared, and in India Samsung’s latest smartphones aren’t due to be released until September 10, so there’s still a long way to go before we can make any conclusions about long-term Fold 3 and Flip 3 demand.
Nevertheless, initial results would suggest that the best foldable phones to buy are a huge success across the globe, not only in Samsung’s home market of South Korea were demand is almost always high.
Hopefully Samsung will share sales data from other markets and regions in the coming weeks. Reports from customers would suggest that demand is higher than expected in many Western European countries and the United States, though.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 retails at $1,799 in the US and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 can be picked up for $999 with 128GB of storage. If you’re interested in either, make sure to check out the latest Galaxy Z Fold 3 deals and Galaxy Z Flip 3 deals.
