Samsung quietly launched its luxury smartphone Galaxy Fold in India this week after unveiling it at the Unpacked of the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy Fold is unlike any handset we've ever seen. On the outside, this thick little number has a one-hand-friendly 4.6in Super AMOLED HD display – but inside that glossy phone hides a huge 7.3in tablet-like 2152x1536 pixels QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED Display Infinity Flex Display, with the ability to seamlessly move between screens when you need a larger look at an app or video. It's packed with top-end tech, including a 7nm processor, 12GB RAM, 512GB of onboard memory, and a 4380mAh dual-battery setup. It sports a total of 6 cameras — 10MP on the cover, dual front 10MP+8MP cameras inside and a triple 16MP+12MP+12MP camera setup on the rear and weighs in at a hefty 276g. And hey — no dual SIM slots here. However, it's also wildly expensive, but then again if you think about it as a tablet and a smartphone combined, it's easier to justify, ever so slightly. And yea, the Fold comes packed with a free pair of Buds too (worth ₹10K). The Samsung Galaxy Fold was initially released in April this year, but then Samsung held back the first batch of devices encountered issues with the screen. Here's hoping these lot are more robust. Pre-book from October 4 and expect delivery by October 20.
