Galaxy Fold starts getting the One UI 3.1 update
Samsung had recently announced that it will release the One UI 3.1 update to older Galaxy devices. The update has already reached the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the Galaxy Note 10 series. Now, the update has reached the original Galaxy Fold.
The company has started rolling out the One UI 3.1 update to the Galaxy Fold in France, and it should gradually reach other markets soon. The latest update carries firmware version F900FXXU4EUBF. While we don’t have the official changelog yet, the update does come with the March 2021 security patch. It brings minor UI changes, Private Share, Object Eraser Tool, Google Home smart devices controls, and the ability to remove GPS location data from images while sharing them. It doesn’t bring the Google Discover Feed feature, though.
If you are a Galaxy Fold user in France, and if you haven’t received the One UI 3.1 update yet, you can manually search for it by navigating to Settings » System updates and tapping on Download and install on your device. If you don’t want to wait for the OTA update to arrive, you can also download the new firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.
The Galaxy Fold was Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, and it was launched in February 2019 with Android 9 on board. It received the Android 10 update last year and the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update last month.
