The original Galaxy Fold turned out to be a pleasant surprise in its time, though not without significant flaws. And now the world will see the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with noticeable improvements in cameras, design, performance, and the screens. Rumor has it that Samsung will triple the initial shipments of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 to South Korea. At first, the company will ship as much as 10,000 units of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 to KT, SK Telecom, LG Uplus, and independent stores in South Korea, which is three times the number of Galaxy Fold devices shipped to network operators and retail stores last year.
Both consumers and operators have left positive feedback on Samsung's new foldable phone. The company has also increased its production of foldable devices. Samsung is estimated to be able to ship more than 500,000 Galaxy Z Fold 2 units worldwide by the end of this year.
There is also the Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne Edition, which amounts to only 5,000 units worldwide, and 1,000 of which will go to South Korea. Samsung also ran an online draw in South Korea for the limited edition of the foldable device. Despite the extremely high price tag of a KRW 3.96 million (about $ 3,300), over 230,000 Korean consumers have applied for the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
