Samsung's new foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G are reportedly doing well in the Korean market. 

According to Yonhap News Agency, pre-orders for the two foldable phones exceeded 800,000 units in South Korea with 600,000 units sold through telcos and 200,000 units sold by other retail channels. Apparently, the pre-order numbers are said to be 10x bigger than those of the Galaxy Z Fold2.

The more affordable Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is obviously more popular among consumers in Korea with the model contributing to 60% of all pre-orders. SK Telecom Co shared that 60% of the new foldable phones were pre-ordered by consumers in their 30s and 40s. 57% of Galaxy Z Fold3 5G buyers are males in their 30s and 40s, while 35% of Galaxy Z Flip3 5G buyers are females aged between 25 and 45.

We just reviewed the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and found improvements in the cover screen, main screen durability and battery life. However, the crease on the main screen is still visible and the screen resolution is still 1080p. The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G are available from S$1,398 and S$2,398 respectively.
