IDC analysts look into the future of foldable smartphones

Published

on

Following the specialists of the analytical company Canalys, their colleagues from IDC published their forecast related to the supply of foldable smartphones. Unlike the Canalys forecast, the IDC forecast covers the period through 2025, not 2024.

The next generation has arrived: the already best-selling Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3, as well as the Galaxy Watch4, are on sale

While agreeing with Canalys analysts on the main point – that the supply of foldable smartphones will grow rapidly, IDC specialists disagree with them on specific numbers. So, according to their calculations, 7.1 million devices of this category were shipped in 2021, while Canalys counted 8.9 million units. IDC believes foldable device shipments are up 264.3% compared to 2020, while Canalys cites 148%.

As for the forecast itself, IDC expects 27.6 million foldable smartphones to be released in 2025. This value corresponds to a growth of 69.9% per year from 2020 to 2025. Recall that Canalys is confident that the bar of 30 million units will be taken as early as 2024.

It remains to add that in 2021 the share of foldable smartphones in total shipments was 0.5%, and by 2025 it will increase to 1.8%.

They are giving up the iPhone Motorola reveals 20 of

Motorola isn’t even close to being the market leader in foldable smartphones, but its Razr models have proven to be a big draw for iPhone owners.

They are giving up the iPhone.  Motorola reveals 20% of Razr foldable smartphone buyers are ex-iPhone owners

In an interview with CNet, Allison Yi, head of Motorola’s North American product division, said that of all Motorola’s products, the foldable Razr is the most popular among iPhone owners.

This is definitely the family we have the most iPhone users moving to.

It turns out that 20% of Razr buyers are former owners of Apple smartphones. They are probably attracted by the fresh form factor in which the iPhone is not presented and probably will not be presented for a long time. At the same time, we must remember that we are talking about North America, where, in addition to the Razr, only the Samsung Flip is in this form factor.

Motorola recently unveiled its new foldable smartphones, including the revolutionary cheap (in China) Moto Razr 40, but in the US, only the older Razr Plus (called the Moto Razr 40 Ultra in China) will sell for $1,000.

Still cheaper than any other similar smartphone but not so

Motorola yesterday introduced foldable smartphones Moto Razr 40 and Moto Razr 40 Ultra, which turned out to be cheaper than all competitors, and the younger model even offers a revolutionary price for this segment at $560. However, these are Chinese prices, and in the global market everything is different, since new items are significantly more expensive there.

Still cheaper than any other similar smartphone, but not so revolutionary.  Motorola Razr and Razr Plus will be more expensive in the global market than in China

To start with, the Moto Razr 40 is called the Razr in the global market, and the Moto Razr 40 Ultra is called the Razr Plus.

In the US, apparently, only the latter will be sold at a price of $1,000. In Europe, they will already ask for 1200 euros for it. The base model Razr will be available in select countries in Europe, Latin America, and Asia, but pricing has not yet been announced. It is expected that it will be around 700-800 euros. It’s still cheaper than other similar smartphones, but not as revolutionary as $560.
