Samsung believes its foldable smartphones will diverge in million runs in 2020
Until recently, such smartphones were perceived as something fantastic, it was believed that many years should pass before their implementation. But no, Samsung and Huawei almost managed to accomplish the impossible and introduce the first mobile devices with a flexible display. True, in the end, something controversial, unsuitable and expensive for everyday use.
But this does not prevent Samsung from believing in the bright future of folding mobile phones. Already today, the South Korean giant is writing an optimistic scenario for the next year. In his rainbow plans, sales of foldable smartphones in 2020 should be 6 million units. The company has already set the “daughter” of Samsung Display, which is engaged in the production of screens, the task of increasing the production of flexible matrices.
It is not very clear how the optimism and ambitions of Samsung are supported. Especially against the background of a rather unsuccessful launch of the pioneer – Galaxy Fold. According to analysts, next year the volume of all folding devices sold is unlikely to exceed the 5 million mark, and in a more realistic scenario, we can talk about no more than 3 million devices. And this is provided that competitors also want to compete for this niche and release their folding mobile phones.
For a year, the current South Korean giant has planned to sell 500 thousand folding smartphones. At the moment, he prefers to release the new product in small batches in the amount of 10 thousand pieces.
