Singaporeans are one fancy bunch.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold, which was launched on Sep. 18, 2019, sold out on the day it was made available.
Each phone costs a whopping S$3,088.
This comes after a rocky start earlier this year, where review models of the phones fell apart within days.
In response to the sales, Sarah Chua, Vice-President of IT and Mobile for Samsung Electronics Singapore said that they are doing their best to fulfil consumer demand as quickly as possible.
“Samsung is heartened and grateful for the overwhelming response to the Galaxy Fold in Singapore. We would like to thank our customers for their continuous support for Samsung’s pioneering mobile innovations, and we are doing our best to fulfil consumer demand as quickly as possible.”
