Samsung’s first fold models could not convince
Samsung is mass-producing third generation of folding cell phones
Third generation market launch presumably on August 27th
Unsuccessful start of the first generation
The first generation of the fold models, which are roughly the size of a tablet when opened, started unsuccessfully in 2019. Due to a design flaw, Samsung had to cancel the global market launch just a few days before the launch. Previously, some test devices that were given to journalists broke after a few days due to technical errors. In large part, this was because dirt was too easy to get into the smartphone. Samsung then revised the hinge mechanism and secured it from dust.
Samsung starts mass production
Although the start of the first generation was unsuccessful, the second generation could be sold much better. Now there are rumors in the room that Samsung has started production of the third generation, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Allegedly, Samsung produces the new fold smartphones in a number of 50,000 to 70,000 per day. The plan is to probably manufacture seven million devices from both new models. In comparison, a total of around one to two million devices were produced by the second generation. If the high production numbers are confirmed, Samsung apparently hopes and expects that the new generation of the two models will sell even better.
Cell phones are likely to hit the market in August
According to internal sources, the FPT reports that the new models will be presented at an unpacked event on August 3rd and will be launched on August 27th. Already on June 11th, the leaker Max Weinberg tweeted the date of Samsung’s upcoming event and what will probably be presented. In addition to the two fold cell phones, two new smartwatches are also to be introduced, according to him. The dates or the production of the new Samsung devices have not yet been officially confirmed, but many sources unanimously report this information.
