New Delhi:

Setting a sort of new record in the luxury smartphone segment, Samsung sold a total of 1,600 “Galaxy Fold” devices in flat 30 minutes after pre-bookings were open on the company’s official online store on Friday, highly-placed sources told IANS.

The consumers who pre-booked “Galaxy Fold” have paid the full amount of Rs 1,64,999 upfront — another first in the super-premium smartphone segment — and will get devices delivered to them through a concierge on October 20, along with a dedicated expert on call 24×7.

According to sources, the company has now closed the pre-bookings of “Galaxy Fold” in India for sometime, as the initial stock was limited.

Each “Galaxy Fold” consumer will also get a one-year “Infinity Flex Display Protection”.

“Galaxy Fold” comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage.

In its standard form, the device gives you a 4.6-inch screen experience for normal day-to-day task but as you unfold it — the cross-screen functionalities go seamless on a bigger, immersive 7.3-inch form factor as the plastic OLED (P-OLED) display can bend like a book.

Each device comes with Galaxy Buds in the box and “Aramid Fiber” case made of fibre that has a high capacity to withstand pressure.

Sporting the world’s first “Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display”, the device offers split-screen multi-tasking, houses six cameras, Android 9 with One UI on top and Snapdragon 855 chipset.

There are three selfie cameras: One 10MP selfie camera when the device is closed and a dual selfie camera (10MP main sensor and 8MP depth sensor) when you open the device.

At the rear is a three camera-system — a 16MP Ultra Wide Camera, a 12MP Wide-angle Camera and a 12MP Telephoto Camera.

The “Galaxy Fold” has a dual battery system (4380mAh typical dual battery) and is also capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via “Wireless PowerShare”.
