Samsung’s Original Galaxy Fold Reaches End of Software Support Cycle

Published

Galaxy Fold

Samsung Galaxy Fold is a revolutionary device that has opened the doors for a new lineup with the latest technology of foldable display. However,  being the first device, it was not as successful as Samsung expected at that time. The main reason behind this is that the company is not successful in providing a fully finished device. Due to that, users have faced a lot of problems.

With time, Samsung has improved the hardware for the latest generation of foldable devices, and it has also tried to fix some issues with the software, but after providing the services for four years now, the company has planned to stop the update for the devices.

For your information, Samsung has followed the policy for updating the devices. As the Galaxy Fold was introduced back in 2019, it falls under the policy where the Korean giant promises to provide at least three major Android updates and security updates for four years. However, in 2022, it changed the policy and expanded the update rollout for devices for up to five years for selected devices.

Samsung Galaxy Device Out Of The Race For Software Upgrade

On the basis of an older policy, Samsung has decided to stop the update for the Galaxy Fold. Informatively, we have grabbed the August 2023 patch as the last update. When Samsung released the latest November 2023 bulletin, it removed the name of the Galaxy Fold from the list of security updates. However, it is expected that the company will introduce one more update before ending the software.

Meanwhile, the other foldable smartphones that were released after the Galaxy Fold are eligible to get the update for some more time; they will all get the update according to the policies, like the phones released before 2022, which will be eligible to get a maximum of four updates, while the other latest devices will get updates for up to five years.

Samsung’s Relumino Mode Now Available on Galaxy Phones

Published

on


Samsung is adding one more functionality, ‘Relumino Mode’, from its smart TVs to its Galaxy smartphones for users’ overall viewing experience. 

The Korean giant introduced the Relumino Mode feature on Samsung Smart TVs, which enhances the viewing experience for people with low vision. It improves particular parts of the content on the TV’s display, such as contrast, color, and sharpness. Now the giant has decided to bring Relumino, an accessibility feature, from TVs to particular Galaxy smartphones, which it initially showed off at CES 2023

Somewhere, Relumino Mode’s functionality and features appear similar to the color contrast setting that was earlier available to access now with Android 15 Beta 2. In a new blog post, Samsung wrote, “Relumino Mode is the product of years of research and development to advance Samsung’s goal of providing “Screens for All” and improving the viewing experience for those with limited vision,” which highlights a range of accessibility features that it delivers. 

However, at the moment, it’s not clear whether this feature needs specific display hardware or if it’s purely a software-side update. According to Samsung’s blog post, the Galaxy S24 series “and beyond” should be able to access Relumino Mode now. The feature appears on the Galaxy S23+ devices that are running One UI 6.1, but unfortunately not on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or the Galaxy Z Fold 4, even after running the same interface. 

Owners of Galaxy phones with One UI 6.1 can easily check if the new convenient mode is available on their device or not by just following the steps mentioned here: go to Settings >> Accessibility >> Vision Enhancements >> Relumino outline. 

On the other hand, Apple also introduced new accessibility features that should land later this year, which include eye tracking to control iPhones and iPads.

Samsung Mocks Apple iPad Pro’s ‘Crush’ Ad With Artistic Response

Published

Samsung and Apple are the two biggest rivals of each other in the tech industry, as both brands never miss the chance to put down each other’s firm. Now the Korean giant has published a new commercial for its current flagship tablet, and the key reason behind this is pretty clear: to throw a dig at the competition. 

Apple introduced a new iPad at a lunch event on May 7th. During the event, the giant also showed a commercial called ‘Crush’ that resulted in a lot of controversy. 

Apple showcases a hydraulic press physically crushing musical instruments, paints, books, camera lenses, and more ahead of evidently revealing an iPad Pro, unfortunately, which backfired. Creative professionals saw a profound sense—a metaphor for technology replacing traditional forms of creativity. Many felt the impoliteness of artists and their professions, especially considering the rise of AI-powered art creation. 

However, every single person is free to have their own opinion, but Apple’s intention was beyond question—not this, but more to show how the new device in the house was able to encompass a whole series of tools and elements. Not only this, but the firm was forced to apologize publicly, removing the commercial from television publication. 

On the other hand, Samsung took all this fuss as a golden opportunity and capitalized on Apple’s controversial “Crush” ad, and Samsung released a counter-ad in which a musician walking through the wreckage left by Apple’s hydraulic press then picked up a partially destroyed guitar and started playing music. The center-worthy point of the ad is a Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra housed on a tripod nearby.
