The Galaxy Fold's initial April launch date was delayed after review units were found to have serious durability issues with the display and hinge.

"These new smartphones empower the users to remain on-the-go and thereby encapsulate the philosophy of "Ready for Live" for the Gen Z", said Ranjivjit Singh, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing, Mobile Business, Samsung India. On the other hand, the Galaxy A30s is available in just one variant - 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage, priced at Rs 16,999.

After postponing the Galaxy Fold's release due to hardware issues, Samsung announced it would re-launch the Galaxy Fold in September. As you'd expect, the service supports third-party Bluetooth controllers, mice, and keyboard, and the site once again points you to the recommended Glap controller peripheral that your Galaxy phone can fit inside.

Samsung's first foldable phone features a 7.3-inch AMOLED screen when opened and a 4.6-inch cover display that activates when it is folded. That along with AI powered Game Booster improves frame rate, gaming performance and longevity on high performance games. The chipset is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and comes with an expandable microSD card slot which supports upto 512GB cards.

From a dual-camera setup on the Galaxy A30, Samsung has added another sensor to the camera module on the back of the A30s.

Samsung notes that for apps that haven't been optimized for the Galaxy Fold, there's the device's built-in "app-optimizing technology", which resizes an app's content and screen ratio to suit both the large display and folded-state display.

The Galaxy A50s has the same display and ultra-wide-angle lens as the A50 from earlier this year.

This smartphone comes with a 6.4-inch HD+ Infinity-V Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1,560 pixel resolution. It runs on Android 9 Pie and is powered by an Exynos 9611 processor. Like the A50s this device also comes in 2 memory configurations - 4/64GB & 4/128GB. On the front, it houses a 32MP selfie shooter. Prepared with different shooting conditions in mind, it also a Night Mode which allows for great shots in extreme low light conditions and a Super Steady feature, to shoot smooth videos in fast paced action moments.
