Samsung’s software strategy has improved a lot over the past few years, moving the company from one of the worst OEMs for updates to one of the best. Last year Samsung announced that most of its devices would receive updates to Android operating systems for three years. Now Samsung has updated its list of supported devices with some additions and removals.
The Samsung website was updated to mention that five phones are no longer receiving security updates: the Galaxy J3 Pop, the Galaxy A5 2017, the Galaxy A3 2017, the Galaxy A7 2017, and … the Galaxy Fold 5G. That’s right, the ~ $ 2,000 5G variant of the original Galaxy Fold is apparently not supported now – that must be a mistake.
The 5G Galaxy Fold was likely sold in limited quantities and was never officially available outside of South Korea and some European countries. However, we believe removing it from the page could be a typo. Android 11 (One UI 3.0) was introduced last month for both the LTE and 5G versions of the Fold, according to SamMobile.
