Samsung Galaxy Fold update: AT&T variant gets Android 10 with One UI 2.1

The Galaxy Fold is undoubtedly one of Samsung’s most adventurous projects ever. The South Korean OEM got a lot of flak after its failed first attempt, but the company’s relentless determination is ultimately paying dividends.

The South Korean OEM launched a reworked Galaxy Fold later on, branding it as a step towards shaping the future of the smartphone industry. We’re yet to see how and if the phone stands the test of time, but the company and some users are certainly hopeful.

This section, however, doesn’t deal with cracked screens and loose hinges, but with software updates that help your device operate at its best. For information related to security updates, major Android OS rollouts, and everything in between; pay close attention to this space.
