The Galaxy Fold could make its way to Russia in late October, according to Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-Review.com. Murtazin took to Twitter to say that the Galaxy Fold will be available for purchase/pre-order in the country from October 25 with a price tag of 1,59,990 rubles. That translates to around $2460, and while prices for Galaxy devices in Russia are generally higher by $150 to $200 than pricing in the US and European markets, the Fold would have an additional markup if the suggested pricing is accurate.However, that price might be for the 5G-enabled variant. We’re told that Russia will get both the LTE and 5G variants of the Galaxy Fold, but Murtazin doesn’t say which variant he’s talking about in his tweet. Even if it’s the LTE variant that costs 1,59,990 rubles, not a lot of folks are likely to mind the higher pricing. If one is okay with spending $2000 on a smartphone — one that’s unique and of the never-before-seen kind — then having to pay a couple hundred bucks more probably won’t deter most prospective customers.The redesigned Galaxy Fold’s availability will expand to many markets around the globe this month. The pre-order period will commence in India on October 4, followed by some Middle Eastern countries. It should arrive in Poland on October 18th, along with markets such as Mexico, Spain, Thailand, South Africa, Malaysia and Australia. We’re working on our review of the device and will have it up sometime in the next few days, but in the meantime, you can check out how our Galaxy Fold survived a trip to Egypt.
