Galaxy Z Fold 2 breaks pre-order records in Samsung home market despite its $2,000 price tag
With the ongoing uncertainty over the world’s economic situation, one might think that people are not going to be spending as much as $2,000 on a smartphone. However, Samsung’s Z Fold 2, with its cool and convenient foldable form-factor and flagship-grade specs is now challenging this conception and reportedly managed to get some 50,000 customers to pre-order it in South Korea.

SamMobile reports that in Samsung’s home market, the exciting foldable phone has set this new pre-order record. The 50,000 customers have purchased the expensive foldable at full price, and this customer count can even grow to 60,000 by the end of the week when purchases with trade-ins will also be included in the report.
