It looks like South Korean smartphone maker and electronics giant Samsung is planning to launch a new smartphone in India. According to the latest information, the company may launch its much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Fold in the market. Given that the device has not yet relaunched, it is likely that India launch may happen along with the global launch. As per past reports, Samsung has fixed the problem with the design and display of the Fold. Samsung plans to relaunch the smartphone in the month of September 2019, a month after the Galaxy Note 10 Series launch.
Samsung Galaxy Fold India launch details
The company has not officially announced that it is planning to launch the Samsung Galaxy Fold to the Indian market. However, a report by India Today states that the company hinted at the launch of the foldable smartphone in India. According to the report, Samsung India website listed the Galaxy Fold for a short amount of time. As previously noted Samsung Electronics President DJ Koh also confirmed that the Fold will make its way to India. However, beyond this, we are not aware of the exact pricing and availability details.
Samsung has priced the Fold at $1,980 dollars in the United States which amounts to about Rs 1.41 lakh. This likely gives us some rough idea about Indian pricing of the foldable smartphone. It is likely that Samsung may add some additional premium to the Indian price to price it around Rs 1.5 lakh. If Samsung actually ends up launching the device in India, Fold will be the first foldable smartphone in India.
