As Samsung is gearing up for its Unpacked event that will take place next month, the electronics giant has said that it has shipped “almost 10 million foldable smartphones” throughout the world, in 2021. The South Korea based company’s facts might be disputed as the International Data Corporation claimed that “worldwide shipments of foldable phones, inclusive of both flip and fold form factors, reach a total of 7.1 million units in 2021.”

Although there might be a discrepancy in millions, the fact remains that foldable phones manufactured by Samsung have had strong sales. Chief of Mobile Experience (MX) Business, Dr. Roh said that there was a 300 percent increase from the previous year and it is expected that that there would be a continuation of what he termed as “fast-paced growth.”

Dr. Roh also said that the clamshell like Flip was the more popular mobile with 70 percent of its customers. Previously, the mobile giant had said that more people had been motivated to switch brands with the advent of the Flip 3 rather than its flagship models.

Last year, the MX division of the South Korean conglomerate had posted that strong sales of its foldables as well as its Galaxy S devices had lead to an increase in the company’s revenue. The company is also planning to introduce the next batch of foldable devices next month.

On July 19, Samsung confirmed that it would launch its next batch of foldable smartphones in an August 10 event. When the original Galaxy Fold phone was launched, there were major problems associated with the model. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 by Samsung have gained mass appeal.

Roh teased in a statement that he couldn’t wait to show the potential of their “new Samsung Galaxy foldables as the ultimate tool for both productivity and self-expression.” Analysts say that the South Korean conglomerate is expected to make minor upgrades but they would meaningful as well as might correct the complaints consumers had with reference to the earlier smartphone models released by Samsung.
