The Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been priced at ₹1,49,999 ($2,040) in the country, which is lower than the launch price of its predecessor. Samsung had launched the original Galaxy Fold in October last year at ₹1,64,999 ($2,243).
Consumers will be able to pre-order the foldable phone starting September 14 via Samsung.com and leading retail stores across the country. However, the company hasn't confirmed exactly when the phone will hit store shelves in the country. Those who pre-order the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will get a free YouTube Premium subscription for four months and a 22% discount on Microsoft Office 365 subscription.
It is worth noting that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is powered by the Snapdragon 865+ chipset in all markets, unlike the Galaxy Note 20 series. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G sold in India runs on an Exynos 990 chipset, which isn't quite as impressive as the Qualcomm chip when it comes to performance and efficiency.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with a 7.6-inch main display and a 6.2-inch cover display, both featuring a centered hole-punch cutout. In the camera department, the foldable phone has a triple-lens setup at the rear with a 12MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. It also features a 10MP front camera, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
