Foldables are anything but mainstream products due to their high prices and new form factor. Samsung, however, is seeing so much success with its latest offering – the Z Fold 2 – that it’s been forced to delay the launch in one market.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is exceeding all expectations
Samsung announced (via SamMobile) this morning that it received over 80,000 pre-orders between Friday and Tuesday for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in South Korea. The number includes orders placed through Samsung and local carriers. Demand has exceeded even the most generous estimates, which pointed towards 60,000 pre-orders in the entire first week, and Samsung has taken the decision to push back the launch as a result.
South Korean customers who have pre-ordered the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will now receive the device on Wednesday, September 23. The product was originally scheduled to ship this Friday, September 18.
Customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in international territories won’t have to worry about delays, though. Samsung has confirmed that other launches will go ahead as originally planned.
