Reliability issues folding displays Galaxy Foldencountered some of it-the reviewers will not affect the launch of a smartphone in the Russian market. This “Komencanto” said the head of the domestic “daughters” Samsung Mobile Dmitry Gostev. He confirmed that the company intends to bring the Galaxy Fold in Russia, but has not yet determined the exact price on the date of the official release may vary up or down up to 30%.
According to Gostev, Galaxy Fold will appear in the Russian retail in the second half of may 2019. If nothing changes, the new product will really become the first large smartphone with foldable design. However, given the recent news about problems faced by first observers, as well as the intentions of Samsung to postpone the early start of sales of Galaxy Fold in the Chinese market, originally scheduled for 24 April, you can expect that the launch will take place towards the end of the month.

However, confirmed a top Manager, we can already say that the novelty will go on sale at a price of not less than 150 and not more than 200 thousand rubles. For comparison: in the USA the unit estimate in 1980 dollars, which is approximately equal to 126 thousand rubles.

However, given the unique nature of the action, we can assume that the retail price will be higher and, according to our estimates, will amount to 169 990 rubles.
