Samsung expects to ship around 2.5 million Galaxy Z Flip foldable display phones this year, according to inside sources cited by Korean media. The maker will reportedly have 500,000 units ready initially with the option to assemble some 2 million more down the road if the demand is there.
The estimate is much higher than what the Galaxy Fold moved in 2019 – between 400,000 and 500,000.
In addition to the higher awareness about the novel form factor the price should also greatly contribute to th Galaxy Z Flip higher sales – it is rumored to cost 1.5M KRW (€1,155/$1,260), much lower than the Galaxy Fold’s 2.3M KRW (€1,770/$1,940).
