South Korean giant, Samsung may have been the first company to announce an actually foldable folding smartphone – the Galaxy Fold – but just a few weeks prior to its official launch, the company had to delay the smartphone because multiple review units encountered catastrophic display issues.
Since then, Samsung has been reassuring people that the Galaxy Fold is still very much alive and will be launched soon, and now, according to information from leakster Ishan Aggarwal obtained by Mysmartprice, it seems Samsung has started manufacturing the Galaxy Fold in India.
This most likely hints that the company is gearing up to launch the phone, not only in the US and Europe, but in India as well. According to information obtained by Mysmartprice, the global launch for the Galaxy Fold is expected to be sometime before the end of July.
The Galaxy Fold comes with a 7.3-inch AMOLED display when unfolded, and a 4.6-inch AMOLED panel on the outside. The phone also packs in a Snapdragon 855 processor, paired with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. There’s also a 12MP + 12MP + 16MP triple rear camera and a 10MP + 8MP dual camera set up on the front. Apart from that, there’s also a 10MP selfie shooter.
The Galaxy Fold was announced alongside the Galaxy S10 series back in February for a price of $1980, which definitely means it’s not a phone for regular phone-purposes and more of a phone for people who want to experience the bleeding edge of what Samsung can do with smartphones, and more importantly, with displays. Let’s just hope the phone doesn’t encounter any other major issues now.
