Nearly 10 million foldables shipped last year says Samsung Mobile President

The market for foldable phones is slowly but surely maturing and this is reflected in the sales volumes. In a new blog post by TM Roh, the president of Samsung Mobile shared that the foldable smartphone industry saw nearly 10 million shipments in 2021. The number has increased 300% from 2020, and Roh believes this trend will continue in the coming years as ” foldable “devices are becoming more widespread and placing greater demands on the overall smartphone market”. IDC has previously published a report estimating a total of 7.1 million foldable shipments for 2021.

Roh goes on to say that 70% of Galaxy foldable users last year chose a Z Flip3, which is by far the most popular folding phone from the manufacturer. Z Fold3, on the other hand, is the preferred device for users who are addicted to multitasking and need the big screen experience.

Looking ahead Roh shares that Samsung has made “progress in every detail” in its upcoming foldable devices, which are set to debut on August 10 at the next Galaxy Unpacked event.
