Samsung stunned and impressed its hardcore fans with unusually speedy Android 10 updates
for all of the company's 2019
and 2018 flagship handsets
... bar one. The Galaxy Fold
was the notable exception, and incredibly enough, several mid-rangers
also managed to beat the foldable pioneer and all-around powerhouse to the punch
in the last few weeks.
Thankfully, the painful wait appears to have finally come to an end, at least in one specific European market. SamMobile reports
the official Android 10 rollout is underway in France for 4G LTE-only Galaxy Fold
units, with an over-the-air expansion across the old continent expected to be a mere matter of days (if not hours).
Naturally, both 4G and 5G-enabled variants should be able to leave the ancient Pie flavor of Android behind worldwide in the near future, and sooner or later, that's likely to include US-specific models sold unlocked or designed exclusively for AT&T use. Those are still available at close to $2,000 a pop with no 5G support, mind you, so you can understand why many users are not happy they've had to play the waiting game for so long.
Besides, the Galaxy Fold was tentatively scheduled for an April update a number of months ago
, and compared to that, you can say Samsung actually started delivering this latest Android 10
goodie pack (with One UI 2.0
on top) early.
Nonetheless, it must be frustrating to spend a small fortune and get such mediocre software support in exchange for one's hard-earned money. Let's at least hope the Galaxy Z Flip
will be treated as an equal to the Galaxy S20
lineup starting with the Android 11
