San Francisco, October 28: South Korean tech giant Samsung’s first Galaxy Fold model is reportedly no longer receiving Android updates for its devices.

According to Gizmochina, the Galaxy Fold launched in 2019 with Android 9 Pie out of the box after suffering numerous delays before its eventual release. Since then, the tech giant has provided several updates and its first foldable device is now powered by Android 12 OS. Samsung sold over 1.2 million Galaxy devices in India worth Rs 1,000 crore in the last 24 hours.

It looks like it’s the end of the road because Samsung won’t provide a significant OS update for the Galaxy Fold. This means that the device will not receive the Android 13 OS based One UI 5.0 update.

Samsung usually offers three years of OS updates with an additional year of security patches, but it appears that this is the only foldable smartphone from the company that isn’t getting any updates after Android 12, according to a report. Samsung appoints third-generation heir Lee Jae-yong as executive chairman.

However, the Galaxy Fold will no longer be able to receive significant upgrades as its three-year update cycle has ended. Samsung’s 2021 and 2022 Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip phones will still be eligible for the Android 14 update next year.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be more software updates for that particular device. There is still at least a year left for security patches and updates, the report added.
