Folks that were among the first to jump on the foldable tech bandwagon with the Galaxy Fold have been waiting a long time for Android 10. Support for the $2,000 device seemed to be put on the backburner while Samsung focused on other budget and mid-range phones, not to mention the Z Flip. But now, finally, it’s arrived. As reported on Sammobile, the Android 10 update for the Galaxy Fold has started rolling out to users in the US.

The update sees the arrival of One UI 2.1, as well as some new features from the Galaxy 20, such as Quick Share and Music Share. You’ll also get the March 2020 security patch and a bunch of new functions such as system-wide dark mode, privacy enhancements, a screen recorder and a revamped gesture navigation system — one Redditor who has already received the update has helpfully shared the full changelog, so you can see what’s in store. No word yet on when it’ll reach other countries, but it should only be a matter of time.
