A few days ago, we mentioned the Galaxy Z Fold 2 Indian pricing, availability and offers available. In the same story, we also mentioned the pre-order program that leaked along with the delivery schedule. Well, the pre-order for the folding second generation smartphone started yesterday in the country. Just 24 hours after opening, the Fold 2 managed to break its predecessor’s record.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 exceeded the pre-booking numbers within the first 24 hours!
According to Samsung India, the brand new foldable Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone managed to reach the top of the chart when it comes to details before booking. The device has seen four times higher demand than the first generation Galaxy Fold. It makes sense given that the consumer may have been anxious to spend a lot of money on the first generation of folding devices. We even saw various manufacturing issues with the original Galaxy Fold, which was later settled by the brand.
With the offer of the second generation, the chaebol seems to have made a great effort in both material and quality of construction. In addition, the brand has also focused a little more on the marketing side. Given the fact that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the company’s third foldable smartphone, the new data makes sense. Consumers are now more aware of the offer and the idea than before. Finally, consumers could consider the fact that Samsung may have become more mature in the folding lineup.
Apart from India, the brand new Galaxy Z Fold 2 also managed to break the pre-order records in its homeland, namely South Korea.
