It has been a month since Samsung released its next-generation Samsung foldable.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3

To be precise, the South Korean phone maker debuted the third generation of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 last Aug. 11 during its Galaxy Unpacked event, which was held online due to the restrictions brought upon by the COVID 19 pandemic.

On top of that, Samsung also holds the fastest-selling smartphone lineups in its home country, Korea.

Both the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S8 series were heralded as the fastest-selling mobile phones in Korea, as per GSMArena.

Now, the latest foldable joins the record that Samsung also previously held.

Not just that, the two foldable phones also surpassed the pre-order record of the Galaxy S21 and Note 20 series with a total of 920,000 units.

Both the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 are garnering impressive sales figures, which is contrary to the performance of their predecessors.

It is worth noting that Samsung included numerous improvements from the pioneer version of the foldable in its third-generation foldable.

UberGizmo further suggested that the upgrades that the South Korean phone maker implemented must have been paying off, increasing the fan base of the foldable.
