Samsung ends Android updates for its first foldable smartphone

There are many indications that, three years after its debut, Samsung’s first foldable smartphone – the Galaxy Fold – is nearing the end of its support period from the manufacturer. Indeed, the device will no longer receive a new version of Android.

Although devices with a foldable screen are still a significant minority of smartphones, it has been three years since the debut of Samsung’s first hardware with a flexible display. It seems that the Korean company is not going to look back and is focusing on newer ‘foldable’ devices.

It is practically certain that the first generation Samsung Galaxy Fold will no longer receive the new version of Android 13 with the One UI 5.0 system overlay. The smartphone is not on the list of hardware to receive the relevant update, so its users will have to make do with the presence of Android 12.

This fact confirms that Samsung will follow its typical strategy for this model of providing operating system updates for three years after the market debut.

Of course, this does not mean that the manufacturer will no longer offer security patches or other critical patches – these will continue to be made available for at least another year.
