On 20th of February 2019, Samsung mobile officially unpacked the Galaxy S10 alongside the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event in San Francisco, California. At $1,980 price tag, it was a common knowledge that the Galaxy Fold won’t get a wide rollout as it isn’t meant for everyone.
With the April 26 launch in the US and May 3 in Europe inching closer, a report from out of India suggests the country might be one of the lucky few that will be getting the device. The hint comes from no other than the firm’s CEO DJ Koh who at the S10 launch event today in India confirmed a few details about the device availability in India. Although no exact timeline/date was given, CEO DJ Koh confirmed the device will launch in India, and what is more, the device will be made in India to drag down the asking price.
The Galaxy S10 5G variant, the Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit, and Galaxy Fit e will all launch in India at a date yet to be announced.
The Galaxy Fold was one of the most innovative product showcased at the MWC, the device was however lambasted for having a screen that folds in rather than one that folds out as in the foldable Huawei Mate X.
