New Galaxy Fold update brings Galaxy S20 camera features, May security patch

Firmware

Last updated: April 29th, 2020 at 15:03 UTC+02:00

Samsung took a long time to bring Android 10 to the Galaxy Fold, but the company made up for the delay by updating its first foldable directly to One UI 2.1. As a result, the Galaxy Fold received a number of features that were introduced with the Galaxy S20 when it was updated to Android 10. However, the initial Android 10 release didn't bring all of the Galaxy S20 features that were promised for the Galaxy Fold. That is changing today thanks to a new update that's rolling out to the device.

New features include Pro video mode, Single Take, and 4K 60 fps selfie videos

The update comes with firmware version F900FXXU3BTDD and adds multiple new camera modes to the Galaxy Fold. There's Single Take, which allows you to take a series of videos and still images with all of the rear cameras with a single tap. Then there's Night Hyperlapse, which records timelapse videos with long exposure to create a light trail effect that's beautiful to look at — check out this video sample to see what we're talking about.

The update also adds the ability to record videos in Pro mode, a feature that Samsung reintroduced to its smartphones with the Galaxy S20 series after taking it away with the Android Pie update back in late 2018, along with 60 fps 4K video recording with the front camera. The Galaxy Fold is also getting support for creating custom filters in the Camera app. Called My Filters, the feature lets you create filters based on existing photos in your gallery and then use them for new photos taken with both the rear and front cameras.

Download the update over the air or from our firmware archive

It's not just new features that are included in the latest Galaxy Fold update – you also get the May 2020 security patch. At the moment, the update is rolling out in France for the LTE variant, but you can expect it to go live in more countries and make it to the 5G variant in the coming days.

To download the update on your Fold, open the Settings app, select Software update, and tap Download and install. We also have the latest firmware available in our archive for manually updating with the help of a Windows computer.
