Samsung has been playing the foldable display tech for quite some time now. And we have been seeing them promise a truly foldable smartphone for a past couple of years. This year, the South Korean giant could actually make that happen according to a new report popped up on the Galaxy Club. We know so far that Samsung has registered the Galaxy Fold moniker and its handset with model numbers SM-F900 and SM-900F have been flowing through certification organisations in the United States and Europe.
What we already knew about the phone was that it will be sporting a 4.6-inch display with 840 x 1960 pixel resolution when in a folded state. Once it’s unfolded, the display could expand to 7.6-inch sporting a 1536 x 2152 pixel resolution. Note that Samsung could be calling it an Infinity Flex display and it would be an AMOLED panel.
Samsung Galaxy Fold: Availability and Price
The new report states that the Samsung Fold could sport a Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset for 2019 phones. Further, it is expected to be coupled with an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Talking about the availability of the Galaxy Fold, it is believed to officially make its global debut in March. It could start with European and the US market, and then eventually arrive in India as well. With a limited number of units.
There could be a hefty price attached to it as we knew about it more than six months ago. The Samsung Galaxy Fold might cost around $2000, which roughly translates to Rs 1,40,990. The expected Indian price tag could go up to Rs 1,50,000.
