Last week, Samsung rolled out the same update of One UI 2.1 to all Galaxy Fold 4G devices. Now, Samsung has also pushed the new One UI 2.1 based on Android 10 update to Galaxy Fold 5G as well. The update was delayed by months and an expensive device like Galaxy Fold should have received the update at least a couple of weeks back. Almost all phones launched at that point on time now runs on Android 10.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy 5G, you will get a new update with firmware F907BXXU3BTC9 along with the March security patch. The file size of the new update firmware is about 2.35GB in size and brings some additional features like Quick Share, Music Share, etc. When it comes to the camera side of things, now we get a better night camera mode and an additional Screen recording option as well.
Why Samsung is late?
The number one reason why the update is delayed for Galaxy Fold smartphones is the unique form-factor. As the device is having a foldable display and some device-specific features, developers need to work more on porting these features to the device. It will longer than usual to port every feature from Android 10 and make it 100% working on the device. Furthermore, the 5G version of Galaxy Fold needs even more time as the new 5G modem should be tweaked for Fold 5G. These might be the reasons why Samsung is late to push updates to Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G.
Users will receive the update in the coming days and you could find it in the Software Update center. The update file size is about 2.35GB and once done your Galaxy Fold 5G will fly with the new Android 10 topped by One UI 2.1
