After iPhones, now 'Made in India' Samsung phones: Galaxy Z Flip 5, Fold 5 to be manufactured in India

Korean smartphone maker Samsung will manufacture its new flagship Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 devices to meet local requirements. The new devices were unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event on the 26th of July, and pre-orders began at midnight on the 27th of July.

Confirming the news about both the flagship devices being manufactured in India, Samsung SouthWest Asia President and CEO J B Park said, “Both Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Flip 5 will be manufactured at India factory in Noida,” 

Meanwhile, Samsung India Senior Vice President (Mobile Business) Raju Pullan informed that customers in India will get ‘made in India’ Galaxy Fold 5 and Galaxy Flip 5 devices from the start. He said, “Consumers in India look at products that are value for money, aspirational and add value to them overall. I witness this even in rural markets. If these are provided to consumers, we see strong adoption for new categories,”

Foldable smartphones in India will grow at over 65 percent year-on-year while the foldable segment and Samsung will have an edge due to its brand salience and market stewardship, CyberMedia Research (CMR) Industry Intelligence Group Head Prabhu Ram was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
