The year 2023 promises to be gloomy for smartphone manufacturers. Samsung, yet the world leader in this field, has thus revised its estimates downwards. They will only sell 263 million devices. The chaebol intends to take advantage of the vogue for folding smartphones to maintain its revenue. These high value-added products are finally achieving commercial success. We can say it, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are finally reliable and durable products. How long the road has been traveled since the Galaxy Fold whose screen cracked from the first uses.

One detail, however, marred the forward march of these devices destined to become ubiquitous in the near future: they will always benefit from the latest One UI updates. While the entire range of traditional smartphones from the South Korean manufacturer, from the Galaxy A13 to the Galaxy S22, has already received the latest iteration of One UI, the folding ones had to wait four weeks.
