Earlier this week we reported that Samsung’s premium luxury Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone is offered at a discounted price in offline retail stores. However, the reports were not true. Samsung has clarified that there is no such discount being offered. The high-end smartphone was launched last month in India at Rs 164,999 (Rs 1.65 lakh). Samsung had to close the pre-booking of the Galaxy Fold smartphone in India initially after an overwhelming response. The units were reportedly sold out in just 30 minutes of pre-booking on two occasions.
