    BREAKING: Galaxy Fold gets Android 11 One UI 3.0 update

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: January 18th, 2021 at 08:44 UTC+01:00

    Just a week after releasing the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung has started updating the Z Fold 2's predecessor. In fact, it seems the rollout kicked off early last week in France but was limited to Samsung's Smart Switch software instead of going out over the air. However, that has now changed, and the update is available in France and the UAE for the LTE variant and in the UK and Switzerland for the 5G variant.

    Galaxy Fold owners in those countries can now update to Android 11 by opening the phone's Settings app, selecting Software update, and tapping Download and install. The Android 11 firmware is also available for download from our archives if you would like to upgrade your phone manually using a Windows PC. The update comes with firmware version F900FXXU4DUA1 for the LTE variant and F907BXXU4DUA1 for the 5G variant.

    The update will introduce Android 11 features like chat bubbles, a conversation section in the notifications area, one-time permissions, and a dedicated media playback widget, along with a refreshed user interface and improved stock Samsung apps and a couple of other new features courtesy of One UI 3.0. The latest security patch is included as well.

    It's worth noting that some markets may not get Android 11 and One UI 3.0 before February, if Samsung's official roadmap is to be believed. You can find the roadmap for your country in the Samsung Members app's Notices section on your Galaxy Fold.
