Initial batch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold has sold out

Samsung Galaxy Fold
occupies a unique space in the smartphone
market, where at $2,000 it makes it a very, very expensive
smartphone to own. At the same time, it is one of the first
foldable smartphones in the market and there is no doubt that many
are curious to see if they are
indeed the game-changer that we were promised

It turns out that maybe the $2,000 price tag did not put many
people off from buying it because according to a report from
Droid-Life, it seems that Samsung has since sold out of their
initial batch of Galaxy Fold handsets. The report claims that
Samsung has sent out emails to customers who had reserved the phone
but failed to pull the trigger when it came to pre-ordering.

The email let those customers know that “due to overwhelming
demand”, they will no longer be able to purchase the Galaxy Fold.
Instead, they have been put on a waitlist where they will be
notified when the phone has been restocked. This does not
necessarily speak to the popularity of the phone since we don’t
know for sure how many units Samsung had initially produced, but it
is surprising to see how many people are actually willing to pay
$2,000 for a smartphone.

It will be interesting to see of the
Huawei Mate X
will be just as popular when it eventually goes
on sale, especially given that it costs considerably more than the
Galaxy Fold.
