The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 from Samsung have just received their first software update. It is a relatively minor release that also includes some system performance, reliability, and stability enhancements. There aren’t any significant new features or user-facing updates to look forward to, although the devices may also receive a few bug patches. Everything, even the security patch, is unaltered. The July SMR is still used by both foldables (Security Maintenance Release). However, we anticipate Samsung releasing the September security patch for the pair very shortly. As soon as it happens, we’ll let you know.

The initial update is currently quite widely accessible. Users of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the US are reportedly receiving the new OTA package with software version F936USQU1AVHH, according to SamMobile. The update for the phone’s international models has the build number F936BXXU1AVHH, while the update for South Korea has the build number F936NKSU1AVHI. The three regions’ respective updated firmware versions for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 are F721USQU1AVHH, F721BXXU1AVHH, and F721NKSU1AVHI.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 have been available for pre-order since Samsung announced them on August 10. Over 40 countries started selling the devices to the general public last week. Many customers would have recently received their brand-new foldables. Additionally, they will arrive with an OTA update already installed. The phones may even come pre-installed with this software upgrade for those who purchase them in the upcoming days.

To manually check for updates, go to the Software update menu in the Settings app and select Download and install. Although the download size may change depending on the device model and market, this OTA package is roughly 370MB in size.

However, the new Samsung foldables will receive more software updates going forward. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will receive five years of security upgrades in addition to four significant Android OS updates from the Korean manufacturer. Therefore, you will receive feature updates at least until September 2027. The foldables, which debuted with Android 12, will receive updates until Android 16. Android 13—the first significant update—should become available later this year.
