    Samsung set to launch the Galaxy Fold in India on October 1

    As rumored previously, the Galaxy Fold is set to launch in India on October 1. Samsung has sent invites to the local media outlets confirming the launch of the much-awaited device in the country next week. This makes India one of the first wave of markets to get Samsung’s foldable smartphone.

    Budget and mid-range devices account for the bulk of the smartphone sales in India, but the sheer size of the market offers enough room for premium models as well. The previous report pegged Galaxy Fold’s Indian price between Rs. 1.5 lakh (~$2120) and 1.75 lakh (~$2470), which, if true, makes it costlier than its price in other markets. We can expect Samsung to officially announce the Indian price and availability details at the event.

    Unlike China, Samsung is still a dominant force in the Indian smartphone market, and the company has been working hard to keep it that way. The quick launch of the Galaxy Fold in the subcontinent can be seen as part of the strategy.

    To recap, the Galaxy Fold was scheduled to go on sale in April this year, but Samsung was forced to delay its plans indefinitely due to durability issues. The company finally started selling the Fold earlier this month after making minor but important changes to its design. The foldable device first went on sale in Korea, followed by a handful of European markets. It is also scheduled to go on sale in the all-important US market on September 27.
