Sellers say demand for foldable smartphones soars in Jan–Apr
MOSCOW, May 16 (PRIME) -- Sales of foldable smartphones in Russia rocketed in January–April thanks to a wide assortment and the price policy, the industry’s representatives told PRIME on Tuesday.
“Upon results of January–April 2023, sales of foldable smartphones in units in M.Video-Eldorado more than doubled on the year. The average check amounted to about 90,000 rubles,” a company spokesperson said.
The trend was supported by an expanded assortment, including new brands, the spokesperson added.
M.Video-Eldorado opened pre-orders for Huawei Mate X3, and its sales will start on May 26.
