One year has passed since Samsung revealed the Galaxy Fold – The company’s first foldable smartphone. The handset was surrounded by problems in design and build that forced the company to postpone its release to several months later. However, now it is pretty much established in the market, and we can say, that Samsung learned a lot with it.
The Galaxy Fold is a premium smartphone for a specific niche of users. Those who can afford $2,000 in a smartphone that doesn’t really feel like one. Despite this premium category, the Fold uses have been suffering from a particular issue, the lack of an Android 10 update. Yes, the company rolled out the update for all its flagships and now is urging to ensure that all mid-rangers get the same treatment. When it comes to the expensive foldable device, it’s laying around in a table with Android 9 Pie.
Today, however, we have some good news for the owners of this foldable smartphone. Samsung is finally rolling out the Android 10 update that introduces One UI 2.1 to the handset. At first, the update is reaching the 4G variants that are available in France. However, it’s a good sign that all versions of the foldable device will receive it soon.

The Android 10-based One UI 2.1 update is reaching only the 4G Galaxy Fold in France
The firmware in question boasts F900FXXU3BTCD and as we said before it is meant for the 4G Fold in France. Along with all the goodies of One UI, the update also includes March 2020 security patch, the latest one available. Despite the late release, it’s good to see that Samsung skipped the last year’s One UI 2.0 in favor of the latest version of its custom Android skin.
A good part of the owners is still disappointed with the treatment given by Samsung. Owners of this super expensive device were expecting a higher priority in support, but that was not the case. Now, we can only hope that the Android 10 rollout goes as planned and reach all variants in a short time. That includes the 5G version.
