The Galaxy Z Fold 3 release date is getting clearer. According to a Samsung supplier, the foldable smartphone should be on sale in August or even September 2021. This corresponds to the old Galaxy Note commercial window that the Korean firm could abandon this year in favor of Folds.
Designing a product as complex as a smartphone requires a lot of resources from all brands. Even if some are able to produce several components in-house, none is able to do without certain suppliers. Suppliers who are, to a certain extent, aware of upcoming products, since their spare parts will equip them. Samsung, one of the world’s largest component manufacturers, is no exception.
And when Samsung chooses a supplier for its Galaxy, it must be able to absorb the volumes requested by Samsung. It is not a few thousand pieces that are produced by Samsung. These are millions of copies. The suppliers are therefore large companies, sometimes listed on the stock exchange. And who says stock market says investor and financial communication. When a listed company communicates its forecasts to its shareholders, it talks about its contracts, revealing some secrets in the process.
