It’s been just a few days since Samsung officially announced the launch of its brand new foldable smartphone — the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip at the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event. The phone was announced along with Samsung’s new trio of S-Series flagship handsets — the Galaxy S20, the Galaxy S20+, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. Soon after these announcements, Samsung announced the India prices of these three handsets. The company, however, maintained a stoic silence over the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip in the country. That was until now. A recent tweet made from Samsung’s official India Twitter handle indicates that the company will soon launch the foldable smartphone in the country.

If that indeed is the case, Indian consumers will be among the first to experience Samsung’s fresh take on foldable smartphones.
