SAMSUNG Galaxy Fold Sells out within MINUTES in KOREA, some paying more than $4000 resale

Sure, Samsung may be artificially holding back on the initial number of manufactured units of the Galaxy Fold, but the fact that all phones sold out within minutes and thereís people who are paying more than $4,000 for one is just pure madness.

Iím a fan of foldable phones myself. I think they are cool and, once the kinks are all ironed out and they get thinner, they will be what everyone uses. And Iím sure that the Galaxy Fold will end being a success. But I would never pay $2,000, let alone more than $4,000 like people in Hong Kong are doing with imported units from South Korea.

South Korea is the only country where you can get a Fold now. The first round of $2,000 pre-orders sold out within minutes of launch. And, as SamMobile reports, the Seoul-based company had to change its original plans because of the higher-than-expected demand, increasing the number of units in a second pre-order batch that will be available September 18.

Granted, the first batch was only 4,000 units, 3,000 sold directly at Samsung stores and 1,000 units for the three major carriers. Thatís not much, but consider this: First, the Galaxy Fold costs about $2,000 in South Korea. Secondly, the phone was universally slammed for its problematic design when it first came out.

In theory, the Fold's problems have been fixed but the jury is still out.

According to Samsung, the company is expecting 1 million Folds to be sold in the entire planet when it launches internationally. Stay tuned for our updated Galaxy Fold review.

The Fold reminds me all those years ago when the OG Galaxy Note came out as a proof of concept. Back in 2011 people thought it was ridiculous to carry around something as big as 5.3 inches, but now phablets are king. I have high hopes the Fold will be more mainstream two or three iterations down the line once the design is more fleshed out.

Something that folds like that definitely has to have mechanics that are up to par; given that the it folds right on the touch screen. Also because of the bulky, double layered design, it will also probably have more heat. So hopefully its ventilated right. They obviously rushed the first model for the sake of being "first". Hopefully they got it right this time.

I didn't really give a fu*k either way. You sitting here happy some dumb fu*k in ANOTHER COUNTRY paid over 4g's for a phone. I asked because your super excited about this news. Unless you have stock in the company which I doubt you do, this does nothing for your life.......stop championing dumb sh*t

i was thinking about this morning. it obviously sucked that it was the press that were the 1st testers, but after the battery fiasco, it was way better it happened this way. get a small group of people to test it out and find the glitches instead of having a ton of people pissed off for buying a $2k broken phone. now its perfect, and they didnt p*ss off their fanbase

Says he didn't give a fock, yet here he is, giving plenty of focks in this thread.

You can see, by how bunched his knickers are, that he is one of those goofies that said the Fold would flop. Now he's in here mad as fock and trying to deflect.

Nobody is excited goofy but don't be mad because you get called out for dumbass predictions you made in the past.

Dude its a phone again I give 2 fu*ks, I commented on your silly a*s cause you were in here acting like a f*g**t being overly excited about the sh*t. which is why I asked how is this a win for you, which you promptly pointed out your a fu*king loser so this in no way affects you. Get your life together and stop a*suming that everyone gives 2 rat fu*ks about this phone or who buys it.

Ol im going to be in the line the first day this is available gullible a*s n*gga....

I swear the bandwagon consumer has to be the dumbest demographic out here, all it takes is one article about some other idiot paying a 400% mark up to get you hyped to go throw your money at some sh*t that when it comes down it works exactly like the phone you already have.

^ This is how he shows he "doesn't give a f*ck." By writing paragraphs that no one will read. Fock up goofy. Not my fault you made that dumbass prediction.
