South Korean tech giant Samsung has announced that it is rolling out a new software update to the Galaxy Fold that will enable it to offer some of the popular features of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
While the company has announced the update today, it has also specified that the launch date and available features may vary by carrier or region.
After this update, Galaxy Fold users will be able to launch up to three apps together in their preferred split-screen layout using App Pair functionality. Users will be able to access this feature via the Edge Panel, which combines the Multi-Window Tray with Edge Panel, said the company. Users will have to swipe the side of the screen to see up to 22 apps. “The arrangement of the Multi-Active Window layout can now be arranged horizontally, giving you added flexibility for multitasking,” added the company.
This update will also come with the option to connect the Galaxy Fold wirelessly to a Smart TV using Samsung DeX. Once the user taps on the Samsung DeX icon in the quick panel, they can customise the second screen as per their need with screen zoom and various font size options.
The camera upgrades on the Galaxy Fold include Auto framing and Capture View Mode. While the former is said to zoom in or out to track motion to keep the subject centrally framed, the latter is said to capture and review photos in real-time. It is said to show you up to five of the latest photos or videos on the left side of the Main Screen, while giving users a preview of their next shot on the other half. Another camera centric feature is Dual Preview, This feature allows users to show a preview of the image on both the Cover and main screens of Galaxy Fold. This feature also works with video in Pro Video mode.
Lastly, Galaxy Fold users will now get the option to directly share the password of the Wi-Fi you are connected to trusted Galaxy devices that are near them. The updated Wi-Fi feature can also show them the speed of nearby connections (Very Fast, Fast, Normal Slow) to help them find one that’s suitable.
