Samsung's Galaxy Fold will have support from 'hundreds' of apps

Samsung's Galaxy Fold will have support from 'hundreds' of apps Foldable phones aren't worth much without apps that can take advantage of their screens -- Huawei even postponed the Mate X to give app makers more time to optimize their titles. That might not be much of a problem now that the revised Galaxy Fold is finally ready to make its debut. Samsung revealed that it has worked with Google and developers to bring Fold support to "hundreds" of apps, including big names like Amazon Prime Video, Facebook, Spotify and Twitter. This comes after Samsung and Google set up test labs that have spent months helping app makers fine-tune their work for the Fold.

A leak earlier this week claimed that Samsung will soon release Android 10 betas for its 2019 flagships, including the Galaxy S10 series and the Note 10 series. That’s hardly surprising, considering that Samsung usually updates its latest flagships to Google’s most recent major Android version. If the rumor is correct, then the Android 10 update for the S10 and Note 10 models might drop a lot sooner than anticipated, maybe as soon as this winter. But a new leak gives us even better news: Samsung is apparently looking to update several other Android phones, although it’s unclear exactly when these devices will get Android 10.

Android 10 beta for Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 is almost here

Android 10 beta for Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 is almost here Unless you own a Pixel, waiting for the latest Android release to hit your device can be excruciating, but anyone who picked up one of the latest flagship phones from Samsung this year won't have to wait too much longer. On Tuesday, SamMobile reported that Google will have a beta for Android 10, and that the program will be announced toward the end of September. The first build will begin rolling out in the US and Europe in October. We know that

Per Android Pure, the following Android smartphones and tablets will get the Android 10 treatment in the near future:

We’re looking at quite the list here, and Samsung device owners who purchased affordable devices from the Galaxy M, J, and A series should be happy to hear that updates are in store for them.

That said, we’ll note the absence of a few devices that should be included on the list: Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy Note 10 5G, and Galaxy Tab S6. When it comes to the two 5G smartphones, there is a simple explanation for their absence. They’re both parts of broader flagship series, so they’ll probably get the update at the same time. But if this is indeed a document leaked from Samsung, it’s interesting that the company makes a point to highlight the Galaxy A90 5G on the list.

Samsung phones now connect to Android Auto wirelessly

  Samsung phones now connect to Android Auto wirelessly If you've been waiting to connect your non-Google phone with wireless Android Auto, today's your lucky day. While Google initially said -- more than a year ago -- that Android Auto would work with any phone running Android 9.0 or higher, it's been restricted to its own Pixel and Nexus devices. Until now, it seems. As identified by Android Police, a Google support document has been revised to include a number of Samsung phones within Android Auto's ecosystem.The Samsung Galaxy phones now compatible with Android Auto Wireless include the Galaxy S8/S8+, S9/S9+, and S10/S10+. The Galaxy Note 8, Note 9, and Note 10 are also compatible. You'll need Android 9.

The Galaxy Tab S6 is the best tablet Samsung ever made, its own iPad Pro alternative that packs a bunch of features that aren’t available on any other tablet. Therefore, it stands to reason that the Galaxy Tab S6 should be the first Samsung tablet to get Android 10. Finally, we’ll also observe that the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 phones aren’t even on the list. So if you’re rocking Samsung flagships from just 2 years ago, you might not get the Android 10 update if this list is the real deal.
