As I said there are plenty of fools who can easily buy this over-priced junk in india. There is nothing "cool" about this phone nor samsung. This phone does not even have stereo speakers and they are charging nearly 2000$ for this. lol It is easy to fool the westerners but not us.

Per capita income plays a huge role here. The size of the market for premium smartphones is directly proportional to the number of people with disposable income. However, even if only 1% of the 1.3 billion population has disposable income, that's still a large enough number. Please keep in mind I'm not being condescending. I fall within the below 500 USD camp myself.

Brand like Huawei, Oneplus, Xiaomi, Samsung, LG sell their phone exactly at the price tag what they asked in United States if you convert USD to INR for eg Note9
it launched at $1000 USD and in India it launched for 68,000 INR but for companies like Apple there is some kind of special taxes Indian government impose on them.
Samsung launches a $1900 phone in India whereas Xiaomi can't even be bothered to launch its regular Mi 9.

It will launch with limited quantities in India. They are not planning to make many units anyway. A super premium niche market.
Well done Sammy, this will eventually boost the overall sales because people just wanna be seen with a premium brand
sr777, 06 Mar 2019Some people will buy it to show off their wealth.There are so many people here for whom buying a Galaxy Fold is like buying a pack of cigarettes.

They can launch 5G phones anytime. 5G is not going to be deployed anytime sooner in India, hence don't bother on 5G...make sure 5G mobiles are 4G, VoLTE,LTE compatible for now... Samsung Fold though not a great buy at this point with lots of uncertainties, but if Samsung try Apple (during launch stages) by making limited quantities, make the riches to beg for the mobile, they can push quite a lot here....there are psychic characters that can be easily be manipulated like Apple...they will even line up in the mid night and under scorching sun as well

The word "most" only implies majority i.e greater than half or 50%. The sheer size of the market means there are plenty of people who own premium phones but statistically they are a minority.
Losthispoise, 06 Mar 2019Wow... That's almost as costly as the iPhone Xs Max 512 GB Version, which sell at Rs.144,000.but better

We Indians pay the most when it comes to smartphones actually . While the most smartphones do sell in the $500 price point , there is actually a market for premium devices too .
