Samsung‘s President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division DJ Koh have confirmed in the Indian Samsung flagship unveil event that the brand has plans to bring the Galaxy Fold, the foldable phone offering from Samsung in India.
However, there is no particular date or a timeline regarding the launch of the folding phone. The 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 will also make its way to India.
“Indian market is, I clearly said, most important market — not only investment and everything, my long-term commitment is towards the market. In this market, why will I not deliver my newest technology innovation? Yes, I will do.”
said, DJ Koh. Moreover, he has also revealed that the Galaxy Fold will be manufactured in India in order to keep the costs low as importing the device from other countries would result in hefty taxes on the device which is already costly to make. He also hinted that all this manufacturing process would be done at one unit.
