Samsung has sold a million copies of its foldable Galaxy Fold, CEO Young Sohn announced on Thursday at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in Berlin. The smartphone went on sale in September.
Initially, the Galaxy Fold would also be on the market in the Netherlands for 2,020 euros, but the South Korean manufacturer announced in September to abandon it. As a result, the foldable smartphone is not yet sold in the Netherlands.
Samsung is the first major manufacturer to sell a foldable smartphone. Competitor Huawei has only released its Mate X in China. It is unclear whether and when the smartphone goes on sale in the Netherlands.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a 4.6-inch screen on the outside. When the smartphone is unfolded, the user has a 7.3-inch screen at his disposal. The apps used must automatically adjust to the new screen size if the screen is folded out during use.
