Samsung will end Android updates for Galaxy Fold models: report


San Francisco, Oct. 28 South Korean tech giant Samsung’s very first Galaxy Fold model is reportedly no longer receiving Android updates on its devices.

According to Gizmochina, the Galaxy Fold launched in 2019 with Android 9 Pie out of the box after facing numerous delays before its eventual release. The tech giant has since provided several updates, and its first foldable device is now powered by the Android 12 operating system.

It appears to be the end of the road as Samsung will not provide a meaningful OS update for the Galaxy Fold. This means that the device will not receive the One UI 5.0 update based on the Android 13 operating system.

Samsung typically delivers three years of OS updates with another year of security patches, but it appears to be the company’s only foldable phone not to receive any updates after Android 12, according to a report .

However, the Galaxy Fold will no longer be able to receive major updates because its three-year update cycle has ended.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip phone models from 2021 and 2022 will still be eligible for the Android 14 update next year.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be any more software updates for that particular device. There’s still at least a year left for security patches and updates, the report adds.
