The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 have received rave reviews since their introduction. They’ve already broken all sales records for Samsung’s foldable gadgets.
Samsung, on the other hand, appears to be in a difficult position. The company is unable to keep up with demand. It’s not an ideal situation to be in.
The global shortage of microchips has had a significant impact on Samsung’s ability to expand production of the new foldables.
Samsung appears to have taken a number of measures to deal with the chip shortage in its foldables. This year, Samsung didn’t release new Galaxy Note flagships.
The shortage of chips is also the reason why Samsung prioritized foldables development ahead of the Galaxy S21 FE. The release date of that gadget has been pushed back as well.
Samsung took 39 days to move over one million units of its new foldable phones in South Korea. Because of constraints, some consumers have been waiting up to a month for their devices.
South Korean media have also criticized Samsung management for failing to anticipate demand for the new foldables correctly. The devices have proven to be a greater success than the firm may have anticipated. South Korea is not alone in its enthusiasm for the product.
Samsung is missing out on money by not having enough devices to sell, even though consumers are ready and willing to pay.
