Samsung's bringing some Galaxy S21 features to older phones with a software update

Samsung has just announced that it's officially bringing its Android 11-based One UI 3.1 software to older devices. Initially exclusive to the S21 series, this wider rollout includes the Galaxy S20 series, S10, Note10, Note20 series, Z Fold2, and Z Flip series, as well as some A-series phones. Better, that also means some features from the Galaxy S21 are trickling down to older devices with it, and the rollout starts tonight.

Samsung Z Flip 5G gets permanent price drop, foldable now costs as much as a Galaxy S21 Ultra

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 5G has just picked up a permanent price drop. When it launched last year as a slightly refreshed version of the original Z Flip, it came with a price bump to $1,450.

Samsung's foldable Galaxy Z Flip could be yours for just $880 ($500 off)

Foldable phones and affordability don’t quite go hand in hand. For instance, the cheapest Samsung device to sport a flexible screen, the original Galaxy Z Flip, cost about $1400 at launch. That’s a lot of money! But if you'd still like to end calls by slamming the phone shut and flaunting your foldable, you can jump on this fantastic B&H deal that is straightaway striking $500 off the Galaxy Z Flip’s sky-high retail price.

LTE Galaxy Z Flip gets $80 price drop and comes with a leather case for a limited time

Seemingly as part of today's Unpacked Part 2 and Galaxy Z Fold2 festivities, Samsung has dropped the price of the original 4G LTE Z Flip by $80, bringing the phone down to a still-expensive $1,299. There's one other perk, though: Samsung is also giving folks a free leather case if they pick one up — another $80 value.

Galaxy Z Flip review, two months later: The right phone at the wrong time

Galaxy Z Flip review, two months later: The right phone at the wrong time

The progress we've made with folding phones in just the last year is stunning. We went from teasing the concept behind a glass box to several shipping products in just about no time, culminating almost precisely one year later in this: the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It's a folding vision from the future, loaded with flaws and bent like a scythe in preparation of the Flat Phone Reaping. Even if you don't buy the Z Flip (and you shouldn't), your current phone's days are numbered.

The Galaxy Z Flip's glass display fails at almost every level in JerryRigEverything's torture test (Update: Teardown)

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip was billed as the first folding phone with a glass display, but thanks to a "protective layer," the top-most surface you actually interact with is only as durable as a plastic screen protector. In a testing video published earlier today, Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything showed off how easily the phone's display scratches, in the end, literally poking holes in it.

Galaxy Z Flip first impressions: Folding phones have turned the corner

Galaxy Z Flip first impressions: Folding phones have turned the corner

Samsung's new Galaxy Z Flip, the company's latest folding phone, has been making plenty of waves in recent days — first for being the world's very first glass folding phone, and later for being more delicate than "glass" would imply. I've only had the day to play with the phone following our very brief time with it at Samsung's event, and while I'm trying to reserve my full judgment for later, I have to say: So far, I really like it.
