The pre-reservation page for Indian consumers confirmed that Samsung would launch its upcoming foldable smartphones on the same date in the country. Samsung is expected to announce the pricing and availability of these smartphones on July 26. The report from 91Mobiles Hindi cites a leading Samsung retail partner who reveals the sale dates of smartphones in India.
The retailer, who has been associated with Samsung for a long time, reveals that the pre-booking of the smartphones will begin on July 26. However, the company would begin its sales only after two weeks, i.e., on August 14 in India. Samsung had begun the pre-reservations for smartphones at Rs 1,999.

The top-end variant with 512GB storage is tipped to be priced at €1,339 (approx. Rs 121,650). The pricing in European markets is always higher owing to the differences in taxation.
