Last month, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy Fold smartphone alongside the Galaxy S10 smartphones. The company’s first ever foldable smartphone is priced at USD 1,980 (approx INR 1,39,000) and will be available from April 26th in selected markets. According to DJ Koh, President and CEO and Head of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, the company will be launching the Galaxy Fold smartphone in India.
While the company manufactures all its smartphones in India, the Galaxy Fold might not come with ‘Made in India’ tag. Considering the USD 1980 price tag, the Galaxy Fold smartphone will be made available in limited quantities. Once the Indian carriers launch 5G services, Samsung might also bring the Galaxy S10 5G smartphone to India. Unlike the Huawei Mate X, the Samsung Galaxy Fold comes in in-folding design.
The Galaxy Fold comes with a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display and also a 4.6-inch secondary display on the outside. While the 7.3-inch foldable display comes with 4.2:3 aspect ratio, the smaller 4.6-inch display comes with longer 21:9 aspect ratio. It comes powered by 7nm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform coupled with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Talking about the cameras, the Galaxy Fold comes with a total of six cameras.
The notch inside the phone sports 10MP primary camera with f/2.2 and an 8MP depth camera with f/1.9 aperture. When the device is folded, there will be a single 10MP selfie camera on the front with f/2.2 aperture. On the rear, the device sports triple camera setup featuring a 12MP primary sensor with variable aperture, a 16MP ultra-wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 12MP telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture.
It runs on the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with One UI skin on the top. The dual batteries on this foldable phone come with a total capacity of 4,380mAh.
