Samsung’s latest device – the Galaxy Fold – has sold out in the UAE for the second time. And it hasn’t even gone on sale to the public yet.
As reported by Arabian Business, pre-orders for the device, which the smartphone maker spent nearly eight years developing, were snapped up in an unprecedented three days.
A second round of pre-orders for Galaxy Fold will start on October 17th
That prompted a second round of pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold in the UAE on October 17, from its website.
Three days later and they were gone again.
UAE consumers fortunate enough to have secured a pre-ordered Galaxy Fold will get their devices delivered to them through a concierge starting from October 24. They will also have access to a dedicated expert on call 24×7, according to Samsung.
Pre-orders will start again on October 23.
As to when the device will actually go on sale in stores around the country, Samsung said it is sticking with pre-orders for now, with no actual date for its release in the UAE.
