The Galaxy Z Flip 3 crushes the competition in the foldable smartphone market

Unsurprisingly, Samsung reigns supreme in the portable smartphone market. Truth be told, the competition doesn’t even really measure up to the juggernaut that is the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which alone takes 53% of sales during the first quarter of 2022. The Galaxy Z Fold 3, as for to him, lags a little behind with only 2% of sales.

We suspected that Samsung was at the top of the foldable smartphone market. On the other hand, we suspected less of the gigantic gap between the Korean manufacturer and its competitors. According to recent data revealed by Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the best-selling foldable smartphone in the first quarter of 2022 is the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

So far, that’s hardly a surprise as the phone hit record sales in 2021 with 4.6 million units sold. But it is the latter that allows Samsung to drive a wedge between itself and the other manufacturers present in this segment. Indeed, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 alone accounts for 53% of foldable smartphone sales in the first quarter of 2022.

For comparison, the second place on the podium is occupied by the Huawei P50 Pocket, which recovers “only” 23% of sales. Third place is again awarded to Samsung with its first Z Flip 5G of the name and its 5% market share. But then, where is the Z Fold 3, yet released at the same time as its sidekick? Well, at the very bottom of the ranking, more precisely in 8th place with 2% of sales.

Two other Samsung smartphones are also present, namely the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the W22, respectively in fifth and tenth place (4% and 2% of sales). In total, the Korean firm therefore monopolizes 63% of sales of foldable smartphones at the start of 2022. A particularly prolific market for the latter, which has multiplied its sales of foldables by 4 in 2021.
