India is one of the fastest growing countries in the world, for which it enjoys special attention from technology companies. And although Indians, according to statistics, prefer smartphones of brands such as OnePlus and Vivo, some of them could not resist the temptation to get the innovative flagship device of Samsung – a folding smartphone Galaxy Fold.
Despite the fact that the novelty was estimated at a colossal sum for an ordinary Indian – 165,000 Indian rupees ($ 2,300), in just half an hour after the start of sales on the official Samsung website, all Galaxy Fold available for pre-order were sold.
Subsequently, Samsung announced that it had provided 1600 Galaxy Fold units for pre-order, after which the registration of those wishing to purchase a new product was terminated due to the limited number of smartphones.
Users who pay the full amount will receive the device through the concierge service on October 20. All Galaxy Fold owners will receive a one-year warranty on the free repair of the Infinity Flex Display Protection display.
Samsung announced its first Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone back in February 2019. Then the company took a timeout to eliminate the flaws found in the Galaxy Fold design, and then re-introduced the novelty at IFA 2019.
Note that the viability of the device is still in doubt among experts. For example, CNET recently decided to independently check the reliability of a folding Galaxy Fold display. During the test, the display withstood 119 thousand flexion-extension, instead of the claimed life of 200 thousand cycles of flexion and extension.
