So far, at least, it's stuck to the Android 10 rollout roadmap that the company disclosed in late November.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is finally getting Android 10

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been plagued by issues ever since its initial release, but lately, the phone hasn't been discussed as much as it used to — the Z Flip stole its spotlight. Samsung also doesn't seem to be too interested in its first foldable anymore as software development is going rather slow for the $2,000 device.
