Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 breaks record for most pre-orders in Korea
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Breaks Pre-Order Record in Korea There are very few foldable phones in the market and these devices are very expensive. Given the current economic crisis that has erupted as a result of the coronavirus, it is inconceivable that people would want to spend $ 2,000 on a smartphone. That said, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 sells for exactly $ 2,000, and the hype during the pre-order period is shocking. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 appears to have won the hearts of many consumers with its cool foldable look and flagship specs. Reportedly, about 50,000 pre-orders have been received for this device in South Korea.
This is a new record and a significant improvement over the Galaxy Fold pre-order. Recall that Samsung offered about 30,000 Galaxy Fold devices for pre-sale in South Korea, but the company managed to recruit 1,000 people willing to purchase the new product with great difficulty. Now these 50,000 customers have bought a new expensive foldable phone at full price. In addition, by the end of the week, taking into account the number of exchanges, this number could rise to 60,000.
In China, the device will be sold for 16,999 yuan ( $ 2,496 ), and pre-orders will be accepted from September 9 to 24. In addition, there is a limited edition Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne which is priced at RMB 27,199 ( $ 3994 ). The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Headphones and Samsung Galaxy Watch3 Smart Chronometer with Thom Browne Classic Color Bands will officially go on sale on September 25th. It’s worth noting that limited edition Fold2 Thom Browne sales in China took only 4 minutes – this is exactly how long it took to receive pre-orders for the first batch of devices. Unfortunately, Samsung did not reveal the number of units.
