Looks like Samsung didn't sell a million Galaxy Fold units like reports claimed

Samsung Electronics' President Young Sohn, a few days ago, announced that the company had sold a million units of its US$2000 Galaxy Fold. Apparently, the Samsung executive was wrong. The company did not, in fact, sell a million units of the foldable phone.

A few days ago, reports surfaced claiming that Samsung had sold a million units of its Galaxy Fold phone. Those reports weren't baseless either, as it was an official statement made by Samsung Electronics' President Young Sohn at Techcrunch Disrupt Berlin. Apparently, the Samsung executive was wrong.

A company spokesperson has come out to debunk that statement, clarifying that the Samsung President probably confused that figure with the company's sales target for the year. A pretty silly mistake for a person in that position to make, we must add.

After the sham that was its initial launch, the Galaxy Fold went on sale a while ago with an MSRP in the region of US$2000. That price tag alone makes it unattainable to a significant portion of the population. It doesn't help that foldables are, at the moment, far from practical as daily drivers. 

That's not to say that there isn't potential for growth; there is. But early adopters of either Samsung's Galaxy Fold or Huawei's Mate X are likely to do so due to how fashionable and novel the devices are, rather than how much utility they offer.
