Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is not new to us anymore. The device has been an active part of the rumor mill for quite a while now! We have seen the renders of the device in the past and the specifications were also leaked a couple of times. Samsung has recently confirmed the launch of the device too. Now, a recent report from a popular YouTuber confirms that the Galaxy Fold 2 will retail at the price of Rs. 1,84,990 in India.
The information comes to us from a popular creator and YouTuber Sandeep Sarma aka RevAtlas. Sandeep took it Twitter saying that the units will be on the first come first serve pre-order basis. The reason for this is only 1000 units are coming in total in the first batch for entire India. And the good news here is that the Galaxy Fold 2 might unveil with Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus powering the show.
Unlike other Galaxy flagships which generally are launched with Snapdragon SoCs in the United States and Exynos SoC in other regions including India, the Galaxy Fold 2 will be launched with Qualcomm Snapdragon internationally! If the pricing is believed, this could mean that the Fold 2 will be more expensive than the original Fold by around 100$ internationally!
This will come with the Snapdragon 865/865+ variant like the international model.Note 20 Ultra will start at Rs 95,990. Cheaper than the S20 Ultra although the S20 Ultra might get a price cut.
Sandeep further added that the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will be launched at Rs 95,990 in India. Now this means, the Galaxy Note 20 ultra will launch at a cheaper price than the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Before or after the launch of the Note series, we can expect the Galaxy S20 Ultra to receive a price cut!
Fold 2 fans, confirmed with my sources that it will be announced at Unpacked, although may not ship till as late as early October. Assembly starts in September. Also, why are leakers/media saying 7.7″. As we said on 4/20, it is 7.59″…No change. pic.twitter.com/CBJ380tYnb
According to the previous reports, Galaxy Fold 2 will likely sport a larger 7.59-inch main display and a 6.23-inch secondary display with 2213×1689 pixels and 2267×819 pixels resolution respectively. Moreover, the main display will be scaled up to 120Hz as the Galaxy S20 series launched in February had it as well. Also, the render of the possible device was posted by Samsung Insider Ice Universe.
The image posted by Ice Universe on Twitter shows a very tiny punch-hole display camera cutout on the top right of the device. As you can see, the camera here is not placed on the corners or neither towards the center making it look awkward. But if you clearly observe the device, it is understandable why Samsung has to opt for an off-placed selfie camera. Although most of the people might not like the design here, it is still better than the original Fold which came with a chunky bezel and also lesser screen real estate than Fold 2.
Next year’s Galaxy Fold might have a serious tech packed in with sturdier display and S Pen support too, as the company is closely working with Corning. Moreover, Samsung is also working on in-display camera technology for quite some time now, so next year we can expect a Galaxy Fold with this tech packed in. Maybe 2021 is a year for in-display camera devices as Huawei is also working on two devices with the same technology.
