The Galaxy Fold could be priced between Rs 1.5 and Rs 1.75 lakh in India.

Samsung tried to recapture the innovation and awe of futuristic technology with its first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold. However, the device did not perform as the company anticipated as some of the units sent to reviewers malfunctioned and had to be recalled. This happened soon after the device was originally announced at MWC 2019 and since then, the company kept pushing the device’s launch further, until recently, when the issues were fixed and the Samsung Galaxy Fold was relaunched on September 6, 2019. The foldable phone is now going up for sale in the US on September 27 and as per a new report, it could hit  shelves in India on October 1.
