Galaxy Fold launched in India for Rs. 1,64,999 (~$2320)

Samsung has made the Galaxy Fold official in India today, as it had promised. Those who had been looking forward to getting their hands on one might be put off by the price tag Samsung has attached to its foldable phone. At Rs. 1,64,999, or around $2320 based on current conversion rates, the Fold is priced considerably higher in India than other markets, no doubt because Samsung isn’t making the device locally as it does its non-foldable flagship phones.

Customers in India will have to prebook the Galaxy Fold via Samsung’s official online and offline stores, including the Samsung Opera House in Bengaluru. Pre-bookings start this Friday, October 4, and shipments will begin from October 20. Only the Cosmos Black color option will be available. Every customer who buys the device online will be visited by a concierge who will help them set up their Fold and help them understand everything they would need to do to take care of their shiny new foldable phone. The Galaxy Fold Premier Service will offer 24×7 on-call support and a one-time screen replacement for a discounted fee of Rs. 10,500.

Galaxy Fold is India’s first Snapdragon-powered Galaxy flagship in recent years

The Galaxy Fold, for those who need a refresher, comes with a foldable 7.3-inch AMOLED display and a 4.6-inch cover display, also of the AMOLED variety. It is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset, a first for a Galaxy flagship in India, and has 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. There’s a 4,380 mAh battery under the hood with support for fast wireless and reverse wireless charging (but not 25W wired charging). A capacitive fingerprint sensor is located on the right side of the device, below the power button.

There are six cameras: a triple camera setup on the back that’s usable both in phone and tablet form. There’s a 12MP primary F1.5/2.4 Dual Aperture camera, a 12MP F2.4 telephoto camera for 2x zoom, and a 16MP ultra-wide F2.2 camera. There’s a dual front camera above the 7.3-inch main display consisting of 10MP F2.2 and 8MP F1.9 sensors, and a single 10MP F2.2 camera above the cover display. The Galaxy Fold runs Android Pie with One UI 1.5 and supports Samsung Pay. It also comes bundled with the Galaxy Buds and lacks a headphone jack.
