April 2021 security update reaches Galaxy Z Flip with some delay


Last updated: April 15th, 2021 at 12:16 UTC+02:00

The April 2021 Android security update is now rolling out to select variants of the Galaxy Z Flip. Identified by PDA version number F700FXXS4DUD, this release landed a bit later than we expected it to, given how we’re already halfway through April and the Galaxy Z Flip is still one of Samsung’s most recent flagships.

But then again, that just goes to show how much Samsung has spoiled us when it comes to receiving regular security patches across every price range. Even before it committed to delivering three generations’ worth of Android OS upgrades to all of its modern smartphones.

What about the Galaxy Z Flip 5G?

And what it’s worth, it would appear the Galaxy Z Flip 5G started moving to this month’s security update early last week, but only in Germany and China (which gets its own firmware, so it’s not a relevant indicator for other countries). Perhaps with the original flexible-display clamshell now joining the fold, this rollout can finally get going. If you happen to own the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the firmware upgrade to be on the lookout for carries the designation F707BXXS3DUC4.

Between the recent price cuts and given how both devices still have years of guaranteed software support from Samsung, this might just be the ideal time to get in on the foldable bandwagon. And as for the security update(s) at hand, you can try speeding up this month’s wait by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. Alternatively, our firmware archive is always there for any Galaxy Z Flip (5G) owner eager enough manually to flash the full system images containing the April 1st, 2021 patch to their device.
