Samsung starts rolling out One UI 3.1 to the Galaxy Fold
The rollout comes after the company's Galaxy S20 series received the update, while other devices will like the Note20, Note20 Ultra, the Z Fold2 and Z Flip will also get the update.
Samsung is evidently becoming one of the fastest manufacturers when it comes to updating their devices to the latest Android version. While the company continues to update more devices to Android 11 with its One UI 3 interface, it has also kept the updates coming for the more recent One UI 3.1 on more expensive devices.
Another one of those devices is joining the list of devices getting the One UI 3.1 update today - the Galaxy Fold. According to a report by SamMobile, the Galaxy Fold has begun receiving the update bearing the firmware version F900FXXU4EUBF. The update was first spotted in France and might roll out to other regions shortly.
Samsung has so far updated the Galaxy S20 series to the latest version of One UI, while other devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Note20 Ultra, and the Galaxy Z Fold2 and Galaxy Z Flip will also get the update.
While the Galaxy Fold already has Android 11 based One UI with many changes from the previous version, the new update to version 3.1 adds several new features such as an improved Single Take Mode, the new Object Eraser from the Galaxy S21 that can remove unwanted passersby or objects with a tap.
Other features, like Private Share which strips location information from images and improved autofocus and autoexposure controls, should also be available on the Galaxy Fold, along with Eye Comfort Shield and multipoint audio for devices like the Galaxy Buds Pro, Buds Live and Buds Plus.
We had recently reported that the One UI 3.1 update silently enabled Embedded SIM functionality on the Galaxy S20 series in India, which was reportedly not previously available. Users who have updated their S20 series smartphones to the latest One UI 3.1 version can now go to their settings app and choose “Add a mobile plan” to “download” an eSIM and enable dual SIM functionality.
