What crisis? Samsung sold 60,000 folding phones in Mexico during 2021

Whether to create art, make architectural designs, create content or simply use it as a work tool, Mexicans are buying Samsung foldable phones , despite their price.

In addition, Samsung indicates that it expects to sell 75 million dollars only from this product category.

Jik Lee also announced that the segment that has grown the most in the country is premium smartphones. While Counterpoint Research points out that the company has 43.5% of the Latin American smartphone market.
