Samsung Galaxy Fold To Go On Sale From Sept 6
New Delhi: Samsung officially announced the release of its first foldable smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Fold, on Thursday. The smartphone will go on sale in Korea starting September 6. It will also be launched in markets like France, Germany, Singapore, UK and the US soon after.
While India hasn’t been mentioned in the press release, the Galaxy Fold is expected to come to the country and has been listed on the Samsung India website for a while now.
The Galaxy Fold comes in Cosmos Black and Space Silver colours. It is one of the first commercially launched foldable smartphones as it sports a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display that folds inwards to close the device like a clamshell. This is a Dynamic AMOLED display with an unusual 4.2:3 aspect ratio.
There is also a secondary 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display on the face of the cover of the Galaxy Fold. It also comes with a number of cameras – a 10MP selfie camera on the cover, a 10MP + 8MP dual-camera setup on top of the inner flexible screen, and a triple camera setup on the back that includes a 12MP main camera with variable aperture, 16MP ultra wide-angle camera and 12MP telephoto lens.
The Galaxy Fold is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset paired with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The India variant of the Galaxy Fold may feature an Exynos 9825 SoC, but this hasn’t been confirmed just yet. The Fold also holds a 4,380mAh battery that is split into two in order to allow the device to fold up.
