Samsung Shipped 10 Million Foldable Smartphones Worldwide in 2021

Ahead of the company’s next Unpacked event on August 10th, Samsung’s President and Head of MX Business Dr. TM Roh has shared some interesting stats about its foldable smartphones in a new blog post.


Overcoming major technological challenges, Samsung successfully introduced the first-ever Galaxy foldable smartphone in 2019. “Last year, we saw almost 10 million foldable smartphones shipped worldwide,” notes Roh.

“That’s an industry increase of more than 300% from 2020, and I predict this fast-paced growth will continue,” he adds while noting that 70% of buyers have a strong preference for flip-phone-style foldable smartphones.

Roh also claims that Galaxy Flip users love their devices, whether choosing bold color options for their device or taking pictures in a new way with Flex mode.

It’s a different experience with the Fold. Nearly one out of three Galaxy foldable users last year opted for this ultimate productivity device, which has empowered them to do more through hyper-connected, individual computing. Fold users love the multitasking capability of a screen that doubles in size, so they can be more efficient and get things done faster.

Samsung is now all geared up to show off its new Galaxy foldables as “the ultimate tool for both productivity and self-expression” at next month’s Unpacked event.
