Last month saw the launch of Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone at the company’s Unpacked event in San Francisco. At the event, the company said that Samsung Galaxy Fold, which is priced at $1980, will be going on pre-orders in April. However, till now, there was no word on if the device will be available in India or not.
But now, Samsung has finally broken silence on whether we can expect the Galaxy Fold smartphone to come to India or not. At the launch of Samsung Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10e smartphones in India, the company’s President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, DJ Koh spoke to select people from media and confirmed that the Galaxy Fold will be getting launched in India.
According to Gadgets360, Koh said, “Indian market is, I clearly said, most important market — not only investment and everything, my long-term commitment is towards the market. In this market, why will I not deliver my newest technology innovation? Yes, I will do.”
However, he did not share an exact timeline of the launch of the Galaxy Fold smartphone. But then we can expect it to come at the same time as other major markets.
Besides this, Koh also added that Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could also make its way to India once the market is ready with the required network. Koh was quoted saying, “We are working with the carriers here. Depends on their progress. Samsung is ready to support all 5G frequencies – not only sub-6GHz but millimetre wave as well.”
Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with very high-end specifications like 12GB RAM, 512GB of storage, has a total of six cameras, and two batteries that add up to 4,380mAh capacity.
Samsung has also released a statement implying how important the Indian market is to the company. Koh has said that Samsung will fulfil its promise of ‘Make in India’ and ‘Make for India’. He further also added that with the World’s Largest Mobile Factory in Noida, Samsung has set its eyes to ‘Make for the World’.
Speaking on the diverse consumer base in India, Koh added, “We know that a one-size-fits-all approach is no longer enough. Millennial and Gen Z consumers want choice.”
