The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul, South Korea last month have been up for pre-booking in India since July 27, and Samsung today announced both foldables will finally go on sale in India starting August 18.
Samsung also announced that it received a record 100,000 pre-bookings for the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 in India during the first 28 hours of the pre-orders going live, which is 1.7 times the pre-bookings it received last year for the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4. However, Samsung didn’t reveal the latest pre-order numbers, and we are unsure why the brand took three weeks to share the figures they did today.
