We might be facing the heat of July, but Samsung's June patch is still coming to a number of phones. Over the last two weeks, it's reached several devices in the US, including the Galaxy S21 and S10 series, the A10e, the A52, and more.
Foldable phones are kind of like exotic sports cars: everyone can agree that they're cool, but very few of us can justify the expense for something only marginally more capable than a standard design. According to a recent leak, Samsung's next foldable phones will be considerable improvements in terms of price, bringing them within attainable reach for more consumers.
Remember Samsung's Galaxy Z Premier service, that thing they launched when they announced the super-expensive Galaxy Z Fold back in 2019? It's still around! Yeah, weird, right? Initially promoted as an upper echelon of live, 24-7 technical support, Samsung has expanded it into a suite of owner benefits for its most expensive devices. Including desserts, apparently.
If you didn't know Samsung's working on a tablet with a display that folds not once, but twice, count yourself informed. Following initial reporting, further details are unfolding about the product build and timeline.
If one fold is good, two folds are better. That appears to be the thinking at Samsung's R&D department, where engineers are reportedly hard at work on a double-hinged phone in the Galaxy Fold series. According to a business report from Nikkei, Samsung is looking into a double-hinged design, with hopes to unveil it before the end of 2021. That's on top of new iterations of Samsung's existing folding designs, the large Galaxy Z Fold and the clamshell Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung started beta testing its Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update a few months ago, and ever since then it's been expanding to more test devices and locations. Now the company has released official details for when the final One UI 3 release is expected to start coming to many of its handsets in markets worldwide, giving Galaxy users an idea of when to expect the upgrade on their own phones.
