Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S10-series smartphones in February this year, along with Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone. The Galaxy Fold sale was supposed to start in April, but due to issues with cracking display panel, the launch was postponed. Now, it seems like Samsung has fixed the issues, and is now ready for Galaxy Fold launch.

MySmartPrice quoted tipster Ishan Agrawal saying that Samsung has started the Galaxy Fold manufacturing in India, and could formally launch it in the country soon. However, Samsung India has denied the reports. Even CEO DJ Koh had mentioned in March that the Galaxy Fold won’t be made in India. The global launch is still expected to take place before the end of July. The India launch could happen after that. While Samsung is yet to confirm, a top executive recently confirmed that the display issues have been fixed, and the Galaxy Fold is ready for prime time.
