Samsung received a record amount of pre-bookings in India for the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 foldable smartphones that it announced back on July 26. Over 100,000 pre-bookings in the first 28 hours, to be exact.
Now, to show some love to these people, the company has decided to start early deliveries of the pre-booked units. From today, the people who pre-booked are going to start receiving theirs. Full official in-store availability will only arrive on August 18, so this means that those who were the earliest adopters, so to speak, will actually get to play with their new phones before anyone else can buy one.
That’s a nice gesture from Samsung, a company that seems a tad surprised by the amount of positive attention its latest foldable duo received in India. That’s especially interesting considering the fact that the starting price for the Flip5 is INR 99,999, while the Fold5 starts at INR 154,999. These are definitely not cheap.
Anyway, if you’re interested in learning more about the Flip5, make sure you read our comprehensive review. And if the Fold5 is the one you’re after, then our freshly baked in-depth review of that device is for you.
