Earlier this year, Samsung finally launched its much-awaited foldable smartphone dubbed Galaxy Fold. Apart from touting innovative display technology, the device comes with a massive price tag that can burn a hole in your pocket. In fact, it is the company’s most expensive smartphone to date. The all-new foldable smartphone is available for purchase in India through offline channels as well as Samsung online store. The device comes with a hefty price tag of INR 1,64,999 (roughly $2300).
It seems like the company is apparently selling the smartphone with a discount of around INR 7,000 (roughly $98). It is worth mentioning that the additional discount is only available through offline retailers. After the discount, the effective cost of the product comes down to INR 1,57,999 (roughly $2208). Even with the discount offer, the smartphone is nowhere close to being an affordable offering. Although for someone who is looking to purchase the phone, the additional discount will definitely be a good benefit.
It is worth noting that the Indian pricing of the device, even after the additional discount, is more than the US pricing. For those who’re unaware, the foldable phone is priced at $1980 in the US market. To recall, the Galaxy Fold comes with a 4.7-inch outer display while there is a 7.3-inch primary screen on the inside. The phone runs on the Snapdragon 855 chipset paired with 12GB RAM and 5125GB onboard memory. In terms of optics, the device features a triple 12MP+12MP+16MP camera module at the back while there is a dual 10MP+8MP sensor for selfies. All of these are backed by a 4380mAh battery with the support of fast charging through USB Type-C port.
Speaking of foldable devices, the smartphone maker might also be working on a new Galaxy Tab foldable tablet. At least, that’s what the recently surfaced patent tells us.
