April 2021 patch for Galaxy Z Flip hits the US (and it’s not even summer)

A great disturbance in the force could have been felt today from across the Pond; as if millions of security vulnerabilities cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Come to think of it, those might have been AT&T stockholders. Because the telecom giant is splashing the cash again, having even gone so far as to push out the April 2021 security update to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G – in April.

And it’s not the only one to do so; far from it, in fact. See, the April 2021 security update is now deploying to nearly every Galaxy Z Flip 5G variant sold stateside. That would be the carrier-locked units under the model number SM-F707U1. As for the patch at hand, it can be identified by build version F707U1UEU1CUC6.

Not a joke: Even some store units got the April 1st update today

Within the last 24 hours, the new security patch level for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G appeared on T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Xfinity Mobile’s network. Going by PDA versions indexed in our firmware archives, even some store units have been updated. But that mostly goes to show how niche of a device the Galaxy Z Flip remains, with or without 5G connectivity.

Of course, Samsung will be looking to change that as early as this summer, which is when its next foldable clamshell device is expected to launch, either as the Galaxy Z Flip 2 or 3. However it ends up being called, we’re anticipating a plethora of color options and hopefully many more security updates, as well.
