Setting a new record in the luxury smartphone segment, Samsung sold a total of 1,600 Galaxy Fold devices in India. These phones were sold in flat 30 minutes after pre-bookings were opened. The consumers who pre-booked the Samsung Galaxy Fold have paid the full amount of Rs 164,999 upfront — another first in the super-premium smartphone segment.
All devices will be delivered to users through a concierge on October 20, along with a dedicated expert on call 24×7. According to IANS sources, the company has now closed the pre-bookings of the Galaxy Fold in India for some time, as the initial stock was limited. Each Galaxy Fold consumer will also get a one-year “Infinity Flex Display Protection”.
