Samsung shipped almost 10 million foldable phones in 2021

Just a few weeks ago before the next Unpacked event, Samsung revealed that it had shipped nearly 10 million foldable smartphones

Dr. TM Roh cited a 300 percent increase from 2020 and expects what it called "rapid growth" to continue

Most of their folding customers, 70 percent of them, went for the clamshell Flip

Samsung has previously admitted that the Flip 3 inspired more people to switch brands than its flagships

The 10 million units that Roh said Samsung shipped last year were much larger than the shipment numbers previously

The truth, Samsung's MX division saw revenue rise last year

In addition to giving an update on how Samsung's devices are made, Roh also confirmed that the company will showcase its other Flip and Fold models at the next Unpacked event

Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event will take place on August 10 at 9:00 AM ET
