If you’re using Galaxy Fold LTE in UAE or Galaxy Fold 5G in the UK or Switzerland, then you can check the software updates, by heading over to the Settings app > Software update > then tap on Download and Install if available. In case you haven’t received the OTA, then you can manually update your Galaxy Fold to the latest Android 11 stable build or you can wait for a few days to receive the airborne update.

You can manually download the firmware for the Galaxy Fold (both LTE and 5G variants), by following the below tips.

If you’re in a haste, then you update your device manually, using Frija tool, SamFirm tool, or SamMobile website. If you are using one of the tools then enter your model and country code and download the firmware. Once downloaded, you can flash the firmware using Odin Tool. Then flash the file to your device. If you want to do so, then I recommend you take a backup prior to diving into the process. That’s it.
