After months of delay, Samsung’s ambitious foldable smartphone — Samsung Galaxy Fold — was finally made available for purchase, soon after the company fixed few issues related to its design and display.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone went on sale in China today at 10:00 AM local time for a price of 15,999 Yuan which roughly converts to $2,293. Samsung has now announced that all the units were sold out in just five minutes.
However, its noteworthy that the South Korean giant has not revealed how many units it sold during those five minutes. There’s a high possibility that the units were quite limited for the first sale in China but the exact number is not yet known.
Earlier, it was reported that the company has reportedly sold around 500,000 units of Galaxy Fold smartphones globally. On the other hand, its rival Huawei has launched Huawei Mate X foldable smartphone for a price of 16,999 Yuan (~$2,414) which went on sale last month in China.
