Given the two to three months time for assembly, we could very well see the first Samsung foldable phone by MWC 2019 in February. The Burgundy Red option was shown off in China quite recently, though back then, it was named only "red".

BSF troops fired few illumination rounds as area close to global boundary has thick foliage and hinders observation. A senior BSF official said constable Singh was admitted to Military Hospital for bullet injuries but could not survive.

The spokesman said the deceased jawan was identified as constable Devendra Singh, 28, who was grievously injured during the 3-hour long firing.

Referring to the latest incidents along the global border, Sharma said a group of five infiltrators may have sneaked in, while another attempt was scuttled.
