Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 pre-orders far exceed Samsung’s previous foldables

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 are a pair of foldables from Samsung that likely sums up the best of what a foldable phone can be right now. As the technology has matured since the very first Fold, we’ve seen these devices go from being incredibly niche to being a whole lot more affordable and practical. It seems that the general public agrees with that statement too, as in just 10 days since pre-orders began, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 have already surpassed all of Samsung foldable sales in all of 2021.

“We are thankful for the great customer response to our new Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3. Interest in foldable smartphones is at an all-time high, with pre-order volume for Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 already outpacing total sales for Galaxy Z devices to date in 2021. We’re committed to providing the most innovative experiences to our consumers,” Samsung said in a statement.
