The South Korean company claimed to have sold all the units in just 30 minutes of pre-booking, just like the last time. The Rs 1.65 lakh worth Samsung Galaxy Fold went on pre-booking today. The bookings were opened after a 1-week gap.

The company is taking pre-orders for the device through its official online e-store, Samsung Opera House, Samsung exclusive stores and across select 315 retail outlets in 35 cities.
