Samsung's first fully foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold will be available for a second round of pre-booking on October 11 via Samsung Shop.
Samsung Galaxy Fold has been launched in India in February 2019 and was recently available for pre-booking via Samsung's official online store. The company claims it saw an overwhelming response during the first pre-booking, which is why it plans to start a second round of pre-booking in India on October 11, 2019.
The Galaxy Fold is priced at Rs 1,64,999 and comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. It is available in a Premium Cosmos Black color and starting October 11 consumers will be able to pre-book the Fold via Samsung Shop and in 35 cities across select 315 outlets in India, including the Samsung Opera House in Bengaluru.
The Galaxy Fold is Samsung's first fully foldable smartphone that brings a Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display. The device gets a large 7.3-inch QXGA+ (2152x1536) AMOLED display that can fold down the middle to close the Fold like a clamshell. On the cover of the Fold is a smaller 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is a flagship device that comes with an amazing dual display option for the first time. The device opens like a book which doubles the screen space resulting in a large room for viewing. It has a great configuration, good battery backup, substantial memory, great cameras and display. However, the device is too expensive to purchase. When unfolded, the Galaxy Fold can offer a tablet-like experience with new One UI software customised specifically for the Fold. One UI will run seamlessly on the cover and main displays through a feature called App Continuity. It also comes with Multi-Active Window that will allow you to run multiple apps at one on the large screen.
The Galaxy Fold is powered by an Exynos 9825 octa-core processor paired with 12GB of RAM. It houses a 4,380mAh battery, supports fast charging and Wireless PowerShare. The Fold gets a total of six cameras - a 10MP selfie camera on the cover, a 10MP + 8MP dual camera setup on top of the inner flexible screen, and a 12MP + 16MP + 12MP triple camera setup on the back.
