After postponing the launch of Samsung Galaxy Fold for several months, last month the South Korean company confirmed to launch its foldable smartphone sometime in September. However, the company did not confirm the exact launch date of the device. Now in the latest development, the company has confirmed that initially, the Galaxy Fold will arrive in few markets. And on that list, India is among them where the most awaited phone will debut. The upcoming phone is now also listed on the Samsung India website.
Earlier this year, Samsung was ready to launch its first foldable smartphone. But before it did that, it sent the device to some reviewers in the US, who reported about the issues in the screen and the hinge design of the Galaxy Fold. Now the company assures that it has fixed all the issues of the Galaxy Fold handset and that it is ready to be launched for the general public in September. Some of the reports suggest that the company will be launching the Galaxy Fold between September 18 to September 20.
Other reports suggest that Samsung, in the beginning, will roll out 100,000 units in the Korean market and its entire production of the Galaxy Fold will arrive at a number of 1 million units worldwide. Therefore, we can guess that the company is in no mood to launch the phone at cheaper prices. Galaxy Fold is priced at USD 1,980 (approximately Rs 1,40,000).
Now according to the Samsung India website’s listing, the company will be launching the phone in four colour options Space Silver, Cosmos Astro Blue, and Martian Green Black colour here.
