Samsung has not sold a million copies of its foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold. A company spokesperson told South Korean news agency Yonhap that the sales figure is probably confused with a previously set sales target.
At a conference in Berlin on Thursday, Samsung CEO Young Sohn said that Samsung has sold a million copies of his foldable smartphone since September. That would be a doubling of expectations: allegedly there were 500,000 copies in 2019.
A Samsung spokesperson emphasizes in conversation with Yonhap that the company has not sold a million copies of the Galaxy Fold. However, the South Korean electronics group has initially set itself the goal of selling so many copies of the smartphone. It is not clear how often the device was sold.
The Galaxy Fold was initially on the Western market in June, but that moment was delayed because of problems with the screen. The smartphone would also appear in the Netherlands in September, but the company came back to that later. As a result, the foldable smartphone is not yet sold in the Netherlands.
