Mehedi Hassan, writing for Paul Thurrott’s Supersite for Windows or whatever the hell he calls it nowadays:

This week, however, Samsung Electronic’s President Young Sohn claimed the company had sold 1 million foldable Galaxy Fold smartphones. Talking at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin, Sohn said that “there’s a million people” that want to use the Galaxy Fold. He later claimed that Samsung had indeed sold 1 million units of the Galaxy Fold.

As it turns out, though, Samsung may not have actually sold 1 million Galaxy Fold units. A Samsung spokesperson told Yonhap News that Sohn had confused the 1 million figure with Samsung’s sales target. The spokesperson later confirmed that Samsung is yet to sell 1 million units of the Galaxy Fold.

Again, I think of Dr. Evil’s “One millllllion dollars” extortion scheme.
