Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip is going to become a trend setter for the foldable phone market as the South Korean tech giant announced that it had sold out all its stocks of the Z Flip on its launch day on Friday.

Samsung's coveted foldable flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, received an overwhelming response from discerning mobile enthusiasts in the UAE and sold out completely in one day as buyers thronged major retail stores across the UAE.

"New stocks will be available as early as February 18 across all major retailers, Samsung brand stores, as well as online at Samsung.com," a statement issued by Samsung said on Saturday.

The South Korean smartphone manufacturer, which had earlier launched the Galaxy Fold and has sold nearly one million units globally, is going to shake the foldable, flexible or rollable display phones market that is expected to reach 228 million by 2028 globally.

Industry experts said that it is not easy for companies to win new customers for foldable smartphones as this is currently an ultra-premium category with a limited customer base.

"At the moment, foldable phones have a limited customer base, but once the technology gets mature it will definitely get adopted by the masses," says a mobile enthusiast.

Featuring an industry first foldable glass display, the sophisticated device packs a 6.7-inch display that morphs into a stylish and compact form factor that fits in the palm of your hand. It resonates with modern luxury, and opens up a new decade of foldable mobile innovation.

With its colour palette, sleek rounded corners and forward fold that closes with a gratifying snap, Galaxy Z Flip offers new ways to capture, share and experience content - entirely hands-free. It is designed to offer a powerful new way to multitask, which makes it an ideal device for social-savvy smartphone users.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip comes with 256 GB internal storage for Dh5,499.00 in two vibrant colours Mirror Black and Mirror Purple.
