- Samsung revealed today that all its foldable devices will update One UI 3.1.1.
- These include the 2019 Samsung Galaxy Fold.
- It’s great to see Samsung keep its ultra-expensive foldable devices up to date, regardless of age.
When Samsung launched the latest foldable product, they launched a new version of One UI. The 3.1.1 version of the software introduces some new features, such as Drag & Split, which makes opening links easier and more intuitive.
Since then, Samsung’s updates to One UI 3.1.1 have appeared on other phones. However, today, the company confirmed to us that each of its current foldable phones is being updated. This includes the original Samsung Galaxy Fold launched in 2019.
In the past few years, Samsung Update has become the gold standard for non-Google devices. This new commitment to keep its foldable product lineup up-to-date has cemented this reputation.
Of course, Samsung’s foldable products are very expensive, so if it can’t keep them up to date, it will be very lame. Still, it’s not that many companies charge more than $1,000 for mobile phones and then completely abandon them after only one or two years of updating.
One UI 3.1.1 may be Samsung’s last update before the One UI 4.0 landing. The update will be based on Android 12. Samsung should start rolling out beta updates for specific users in September.
