Samsung Galaxy Fold Android 10 update and other news: First OTA update is out!

The Galaxy Fold is undoubtedly one of Samsung’s most adventurous projects ever. The South Korean OEM got a lot of flak after its failed first attempt, but the company’s relentless determination is ultimately paying dividends.

The South Korean OEM launched a reworked Galaxy Fold in India on October 1st, branding it as a step towards shaping the future of the smartphone industry. We’re yet to see how and if the phone stands the test of time, but the company and some users are certainly hopeful.

This section, however, doesn’t deal with cracked screens and loose hinges, but with software updates that help your device operate at its best. For information related to security updates, major Android OS rollouts, and everything in between; pay close attention to this space.

Latest News

September 30, 2019: Samsung has started rolling out an update for the Galaxy Fold 5G. Carrying software version F907BXXU1ASHA, the OTA doesn’t bring any notable features and only improves the overall stability of the device (via Sammobile). The update won’t hit the US, as Samsung’s not selling the 5G variant in the States.

Android 10

  • Will get updated to Android 10
  • Samsung hasn’t announced a tentative release date
  • Could receive Android 10 between December 2019 and January 2020

Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s most expensive device ever, so, it’s guaranteed to get updated to Android 10. However, due to the phone’s unique build and display, Samsung would probably take a while to release the update. Expect the South Korean OEM to release the update at least a couple of months after the update goes live for the Galaxy S10 lineup.

One UI 2.0

  • One UI 2.0 beta could be out in December

One UI, which is currently running on Android 9 Pie, is Samsung’s custom skin. It’s next iteration, One UI 2.0, will be based on Google’s newest OS Android 10. It’ll build upon the useful features Samsung introduced last year, and hopefully deliver an even more fulfilling experience.

As mentioned earlier, Android 10-based One UI 2.0 could roll out between December 2019 and January 2020. We could see the beta update in November.
