Samsung revealed its foldable sales forecast for 2021, and as the year has progressed, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have performed admirably for the firm. Simply put, they were crushed.
As per Samsung, sales of the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 in their first month of availability surpassed the sales of Samsung foldable devices for the entire year of 2020, which is incredible. Based on that statistic, Samsung delivered 4x more foldables in 2021 than it did in 2020, proving that no one believes foldables are going away anytime soon.
Samsung, however, did not provide us with any exact shipping data. However, we may conduct our own calculations based on our best guesses. CounterPoint, a company that does this sort of analysis, estimates that 2.8 million foldable gadgets will be deployed in 2020. Samsung possessed 73 percent of that amount, according to their data. Samsung foldables are expected to launch roughly 2 million units in 2020. With Samsung claiming a quadrupling of that figure, we’re looking at approximately 8-10 million systems shipped in 2021.
Samsung concludes its year-end presentation by stating that it would continue to invest substantially in R&D for these devices, as well as working with applications and services to improve the whole foldable experience for customers.
