NEW DELHI: Samsung Galaxy Fold units worth Rs 1.65 lakh were sold out on Friday in flat 30 minutes after pre-bookings were open on the company's official online store in India.

This is the second time in two weeks that Samsung had to close Galaxy Fold pre-bookings in India on its official online store.

Last week, 1,600 Galaxy Fold smartphones were sold within 30 minutes in the inaugural pre-booking sale on Samsung's official online store.

Consumers pre-booking the device in India have paid Rs 1,64,999 upfront and will get devices delivered to them through a concierge on October 20, along with 24x7 dedicated experts on call.

Each Galaxy Fold consumer will also get a one-year "Infinity Flex Display Protection".

Galaxy Fold comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage.

In its standard form, the device gives you a 4.6-inch screen experience for normal day-to-day task but as you unfold it, the cross-screen functionalities go seamless on a bigger, immersive 7.3-inch form factor as the plastic OLED (P-OLED) display can bend like a book.

Sporting the world's first "Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display", the device offers split-screen multi-tasking, houses six cameras, Android 9 with One UI on top and Snapdragon 855 chipset.

There are three selfie cameras: One 10MP camera when the device is closed and a dual camera (10MP main sensor and 8MP depth sensor) when you open the device.

There is a three camera-system at the rear, a 16MP Ultra Wide Camera, a 12MP Wide-angle Camera and a 12MP Telephoto Camera.

Galaxy Fold has dual battery system (4380mAh typical dual battery) and is also capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via "Wireless PowerShare".
