Samsung Galaxy Fold to launch in India on October 1
Samsung’s first foldable phone was relaunched after some initial hiccups.
The Galaxy Fold features dual displays and a total of six cameras.
Soon after rumours of Samsung’s first foldable phones hitting the Indian shores arose, the company has confirmed the same. Samsung has sent out media invites for its Galaxy Fold handset launch, which will be taking place on October 1 in India. While we knew that the company’s foldable phone will be made available in India, things were a bit unclear ever since the device was recalled due to display issues. Early units of the Galaxy Fold that were sent out to reviewers malfunctioned due to an issue with the display and the hinge. Since then, Samsung has been working on correcting the issues for a global relaunch of the smartphone, which recently happened.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold comes equipped with two displays. It sports a smaller panel on the outside and a foldable display on the inner side. The outer display measures 4.6-inch and it is an HD+ Super AMOLED panel. When the smartphone is unfolded, it reveals a 7.3-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED display inside. The handset runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and comes with 12GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage. In terms of optics, the handset features three main cameras on the back that sports a 12MP + 12MP + 16MP configuration. When folded, there’s a 12MP sensor on the front.
In its unfolded state, the front display sports a notch on the upper right corner that houses dual cameras. The housing hosts a 10MP main sensor, along with an 8MP depth-sensing camera. The smartphone is backed by two batteries, which have a combined capacity of 4380 mAh and supports fast wired charging, along with wireless charging.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold will go on sale in the US on September 27 starting at $1,980 (Rs 1.40 lakh approx). While there’s no official information on the phone’s India pricing, a recent report suggests that it could be priced between Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 1.75 lakh in the country. As per the report, the company will also offer some exclusive benefits with such an expensive device like access to specialised customer care services like one-on-one access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or over the phone.
