It's been a couple of months since the original Galaxy Fold received an update, and Samsung's decided it's time for another. The Galaxy Fold, released in 2019, is now getting the August 2023 update in a handful of markets.
If you own a Galaxy Fold, you know that the device is no longer getting major firmware updates. The August release is a routine security patch, but it certainly is better than nothing.
