Made In India Samsung Galaxy Fold To Launch Soon
Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold was announced in the month of February. However, due to some display issues encountered by early reviewers of the device, Samsung had to push the commercial availability of the innovative handset to a future date.
According to a fresh claim made by a reliable source, Samsung will manufacture the high end smartphone in India and the mass production of the device has already begun. Subsequently, the Galaxy Fold is expected to go on sale by the end of July.
The claim of Galaxy Fold’s availability goes in line with the statement made by a senior Samsung executive. In the month of June, the aforementioned executive claimed that all the issues on the Galaxy Fold have been resolved and the device will soon hit the shelves.
Speaking of the Galaxy Fold’s availability in India, it is expected to be launched in the country only after the launch in major markets like the US which as previously mentioned is expected to happen by the end of this month. Therefore, Indian consumers who are waiting for the Galaxy Fold could expect to get their hands on one, sometime in the month of August.
