The Samsung Galaxy Fold reportedly receives its first taste of Android 10
It may surprise many to realize that the Samsung Galaxy Fold still runs Android 9.0 (Pie), especially considering its price and general new-ness. Nonetheless, the OEM has thus far failed to update the trail-blazing foldable to its more up-to-date One UI 2.0, which is based on Android 10. However, it now seems this situation is finally being addressed.
The firmware repository Samfrew has documented just such a new update for this device. However, before anyone gets ahead of themselves, it is for the SM-F900F, or the global 4G/LTE Galaxy Fold variant only. Therefore, owners of the 5G-enabled units (SM-F907x) are advised that it is not compatible with their devices.
This new 5.11GB package, known as F900FXXU3BTCD, also changes the 4G/LTE Fold's security patch level to March 2020. So far, it has reportedly only shown up as an OTA in France; however, those with SM-F900Fs in other markets could install it manually. They could do so from Samfrew or from other facilities such as XDA's Frija.
