Samsung has revealed that the opening month sales of their new flagship foldable smartphones - Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 - was more than they managed to earn selling foldable devices in the entirety of 2020.
Both devices were a hit with customers and critics, right out of the gate. The phones improved and iterated upon their predecessors, giving customers a fresh new design and updated hardware.
What makes this interesting is that these phones aren't exactly cheap, with prices in excess of Rs 1,00,000 for the Fold 3 but that didn't stop buyers. A combination of a fresh design and some power features like support for the S-Pen, proved to be a winning combination.
As we noted in our review, the Fold 3 is a "big step-up n the foldable smartphone space. It is only the third-generation foldable phone and we have seen multiple improvements."
Our Flip 3 review stated that the biggest highlight of the device was the unique form-factor, which merged what we liked about flip and clam-shell phones back in the day, with updated hardware and a foldable screen.
Samsung has got itself a winning formula here. The prices while expensive compared to other flagship phones were cheaper than the last generation foldables, with the Galaxy Flip 3 starting at a price of Rs 84,999 in India.
