The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 will soon receive the September 2022 Android security patch from Samsung. In Europe, both foldables are presently receiving the updated security update. The US should join the global deployment in the upcoming days.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3’s September SMR (Security Maintenance Release) is rolling out and includes the European firmware version F711BXXS2CVHF. That is F926BXXS1CVHF for the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Due to Samsung having just launched the One UI 4.1.1 upgrade for both models, neither one will receive any new features. However, the most recent software package has numerous security fixes. The updated SMR, according to the Korean company, fixes over 50 privacy and security flaws on Android smartphones.
A few significant Google patches for the Android OS are included in this release, but the vast majority of the fixes are exclusive to the Galaxy. Samsung claims to have observed bugs in various important parts of the device, including the Telecom Application, System UI, Call Background Provider, Photo Editor, and Video Editor. Some patches weren’t disclosed by the corporation for security concerns, preventing exploitation before customers could apply the patch.
Advertisement The September SMR should be accessible to users of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 or Galaxy Z Fold 3 in Europe at any moment. Once the update is available for your device, you’ll be invited to download it over the air (OTA). In the Software update area of the Settings app, you may manually check for OTA updates as well. Users in other markets can anticipate getting this update shortly as well.
THE ONE UI 4.1.1 UPDATE WAS RECENTLY APPLIED TO THE GALAXY Z FLIP 3 AND FOLD 3. Only a few days have passed since Samsung released One UI 4.1.1 for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 before receiving the September security update. The latter is the most recent version of the company’s specialized Android software. OCR (optical character recognition), which enables you to extract text from photos, made its debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 last month. A better Samsung Keyboard, new and improved motions, and other new features are also included.
Other flagship models that have received the One UI 4.1.1 seed from Samsung include the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy S22, Galaxy Tab S8, and Galaxy Tab S7 series. The upgrade brought Android 12L to tablets and devices from the Fold series. Other features that make greater use of the large screens were added, such as a persistent taskbar. Be ready to acquire One UI 4.1.1 in the next days if you use any of these devices and haven’t yet.
