According to Samsung, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G preorder units have been sold out in Malaysia in their preorder programme that bundles a slew of free gifts and perks with the phone.
The sell-out performance of Samsung’s most powerful foldable in the market is an impressive follow-on from the initial commencement of their preorder programme which began on 19th August in Malaysia and which will conclude on 21st September 2021. The link to the Samsung Malaysia landing page also reflects this with a statement that “Due to overwhelming demand, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is sold out.“
Preorder sales for the Galaxy Z Fold3 have enjoyed similar results in other regions. In pre-orders in South Korea alone, the Korea Herald reported that both the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and its sibling the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G logged a combined 450,000 preorders. If sales of unlocked phones that aren’t tied into any of South Korea’s telcos are factored in, the figure can hit a whopping 800,000 units. These numbers are effectively double preorders for the Galaxy S21 series phones and 1.5 more than the Galaxy Note20 series in South Korea.
In Singapore south of the Causeway, Samsung has enjoyed similarly positive preorder sales with the original preorder for the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G being completely sold out according to Hardware Zone.
