Galaxy Fold now getting June 2020 Android security update
The international variant of the Galaxy Fold (SM-F900F) is now receiving the June 2020 Android security update. Samsung began rolling out the new software on Wednesday, with the OTA package already being available for download throughout Europe.
As always, SamMobile’s firmware archive contains full images of the latest upgrade which is identified by build number F900FXXS3BTE1. However, if you still haven’t received the update notification, you should first check for the download manually by going to Settings » Software update » Download and install.
The June 2020 security patch is currently only out for the regular Galaxy Fold, while the Galaxy Fold 5G remains on the previous software level. This is par for the course for Samsung’s seminal foldable smartphone; the 5G-ready version of the device is usually a couple of weeks behind in the update schedule. Speaking of which, this firmware build appears to have underwent a pretty standard two-week testing process at Samsung, with its compilation date being May 22nd.
Galaxy Fold 5G still waiting for the June 2020 patch
Much like it’s ordinarily the case, it’s strongly advised your device is either charging or has plenty of battery life left prior to initializing the installation of the newest security upgrade. Likewise, having a stable Wi-Fi connection while doing so is ideal.
As the first-ever foldable handset from Samsung, the Galaxy Fold treaded a lot of new ground following its 2019 debut. While Samsung’s original take on this novel concept was met with a lukewarm response from critics, the company will soon be trying to improve on its foldable flagship with the Galaxy Fold 2. The second-generation device is widely expected to launch this summer, most likely in August.
Update: The June 2020 security update is now available for the 5G variant of the Galaxy Fold. It is rolling out in the UK and Germany at this time.Join the Discussion
