Samsung's latest foldables are reportedly selling like hotcakes in Korea

Samsung has already confirmed that its newest foldables are seeing "great customer response" globally.

What you need to know

  • Samsung has sold nearly one million Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 phones in South Korea so far.
  • The foldables went on sale in the country on August 27.
  • Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has sold twice as much as the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are selling a lot better than expected in Samsung's home market, according to a report from The Korea Herald. According to the publication, sales of Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 phones are expected to surpass one million units in South Korea this weekend.

Both foldables were released in South Korea on August 27, which means it has taken Samsung's best foldable phones just over a month to cross the important sales milestone.

The sales momentum of Samsung's latest foldables is apparently similar to that of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S8 series, which were the fastest to cross the one million sales mark in the country. Of the two phones, it is the Galaxy Z Flip 3 that is selling in higher numbers.

The report suggests the Z Flip 3 has sold twice as much as the Z Fold 3 so far. This doesn't come as a surprise, as the clamshell foldable is significantly more affordable and offers quite a few major improvements over last year's Galaxy Z Flip.

The early sales numbers seem to suggest Samsung has been successful in popularizing the foldable category with its latest Z series phones. Seeing how the two phones received higher pre-orders than even the Galaxy S21 series, it wouldn't be wrong to say that foldables are now finally mainstream.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
