“Samsung is expected to introduce exclusive customer care services with 24/7 support through call or online chat and likely one-time screen replacement”
Samsung Galaxy Fold is confirmed to launch in India on October 1st, in line with the earlier report. It will be the first foldable smartphone to launch in the country, but it won’t be cheap by any means. Rumours suggest Samsung Galaxy Fold price in India would be anywhere between Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 1.75 lakh, thereby only targeting the premium segment. Samsung is also expected to introduce exclusive customer care services with 24/7 support through call or online chats and likely a one-time screen replacement option with the handset. To jog your memory, the Samsung Galaxy Fold flaunts a 7.3-inch QXGA+ dynamic AMOLED main display with 4.2:3 aspect ratio and a 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED cover display.
