As per some reports, it is said to be rolling with build number F900FXXU6GUL9 for users in Europe and will soon reach other users around the globe. With this, Samsung has included the latest January 2022 Security patch which fixes many security bugs and vulnerabilities.
Being the 12th installment of the Android series, Android 12 creates a lot of hype with its new features, design, UI improvements, and many more. According to the official, they are planning to release the stable version of their latest OS update anywhere soon in the month of August or October month. Meanwhile, every big smartphone venture already started rolling out their OS skin based on Android 12 for their flagship segments.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Device Overview:
Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with a massive 7.30-inch touchscreen primary display and a 4.60-inch touchscreen as its secondary display. Not only that, but it is power-packed with the flagship 2.84GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. Also, the RAM management is good as it features 12 GB RAM along with a 4380mAh battery that you can charge using quick charge 2.0 within an hour.
However, as this is a foldable phone, that doesn’t limit Samsung to cut down the device’s sensors. Yes, this device comes with almost all the sensors, including a proximity sensor. Anyway, as you can see, the specs of this device are decent as who knows that Samsung has already planned something for this device.
So, we will suggest you wait until Samsung official confirms that Galaxy Fold will not be going to receive this major update. Until then, there is a hope that Samsung may look forward to its 2019’s flagship game changer smartphone and bring something great for its users.
